Hello Dalai

Although the Dalai Lama may have been skeptical about Twitter, he now has a verified Twitter account with frequent postings. Mashable credits a meeting with Twitter CEO Evan Williams for spurring the Tibetan spiritual leader and advocate for his people's political sovereignty to join the popular microblogging site. A Dalai Lama hoaxster had deceived the more gullible in the Twitterverse for a while. Of course, as my colleague Jenny Cool has pointed out, Tibetans have been active users of social media for a long time, in order to manage their government-in-exile of their San Francisco hosted domain.
