Now that following the Pope's tweets gets you a fast track through Purgatory, our panelists predict the next way someone will entice us to follow them on Twitter.


Now, panel, how will somebody next get us to follow them on Twitter? Charlie Pierce.

CHARLIE PIERCE: For following him in this one, the Dalai Lama will promise you four very cool future lives.


SAGAL: Faith Salie.

FAITH SALIE: If she gets enough followers at Blessed Virgin Mary, the Holy Mother will start appearing in places more interesting than cheese toast and New Jersey carwashes. Hashtag Marynado.


SAGAL: And Alonzo Bodden.

ALONZO BODDEN: If you follow Snooky, she promises to block you so you'll never have to read anything she says.



CARL KASELL: And if any of that happens, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT, WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell, back with us.


SAGAL: Thank you, Charlie Pierce, Faith Salie, Alonzo Bodden. Thanks all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. And we will see you next week.


SAGAL: This is NPR.
