Holy Smoke! Conclave Twitter Account Hacked!
March 5, 2013 at 4:14 PM (PT)
THE CONCLAVE's Twitter account has been hacked -- apparently out of confusion with the Conclave of Cardinals in ROME, where the next Pope will be elected. CONCLAVE Exec. Dir BOB SHANNON found out that it has received "three or four dozen three or four dozen tweets in the last few days, some in Latin. It's apparently caused so much concern that a D.C. based news agency, THE CATHOLIC NEWS SERVICE tweeted on it. 'Twitter page@conclave has nothing to do with the upcoming #conclave#. Our boo boo yesterday'."
"And so this year there will be two CONCLAVES," he told the local FOX-TV affiliate. "One will elect a Pope, and you're probably not invited to attend. The other is open to everyone, will be full of great speakers and thinkers, and will honor broadcasting's best and brightest. Maybe that's a story you'd like to cover too."
