    The Dalai Lama Officially Joins Twitter

    More and more celebrity holdouts are joining the Twitter bandwagon. First Bill Gates started tweeting, then yesterday rapper Lil Wayne joined the service. Today, another famous figure has his own Twitter presence: The Dalai Lama.

    There has been an @DalaiLama account for some time. In fact, a fake Dalai Lama fooled the media and the twitterverse early last year, which was part of what spurred the creation of verified Twitter accounts.

    This Dalai Lama is verified by Twitter, though ? it is the real deal. Currently, the account is pulling albums and blog posts from his website and tweeting them via twitterfeed (twitterfeed), though we bet you?ll see real engagement later on. He also only has about 600 followers, but as the media picks up on his new-found Twitter presence, that will grow as well.

    Twitter (Twitter) is simply one of the best ways for well-known personalities to spread their message to thousands or millions of people, but it looks like a conversation between Ev and the Dalai Lama was enough of a push to get him to finally join.

    We look forward to future tweets from His Holiness.
