We all remember the bogus Dalai Lama Twitter account and the tweetheartbreak that followed. Now His Holiness has a verified account (just like Ashton Kutcher.) What is it? @dalailama, natch. If you’re part of the Twitterati or whatever it’s called this minute (like Tricycle is) give him a follow. As of this posting, HH is at the propitious number of 108,000 followers. UPDATE: The Dalai Lama is not (yet?) personally posting, as the Huffington Post reports.
