ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A seagull perched on the chimney that will announce the Cardinal’s vote on a new Pope. Tweets started to fly about what the seagull could mean in the election of a new pontiff.

Millions of people around the globe are watching the live video feed of the chimney because the announcement of a new pope will be given by a smoke signal. A white signal means they have voted to pick a new pope. Black smoke means the Cardinals have not reached a consensus.

The seagull already has a twitter account. Someone is tweeting for the bird under the account @sistineseagull.
