LOS ANGELES -- Twitter's founder says the Dalai Lama laughed at the thought of using the social networking service. But the Tibetan spiritual leader now has an official Twitter site -- and more than 73,000 followers.
Twitter founder Evan Williams posted a message Sunday that he'd just met the Dalai Lama in Los Angeles and pitched using Twitter.
Six other Tweets since then provide links to interviews, photos and Webcasts.
So far, the Dalai Lama hasn't posted any personal messages.
The Dalai Lama was in Florida on Tuesday where addressed about 4,000 people at Nova Southeastern University.
