The Pope Joins Twitter

Pope Benedict XVI has joined Twitter and composed his first tweet!

“Dear Friends, I just launched News.va. Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI,” the Pope, 84, wrote on the Vatican’s Twitter account.

The Vatican’s new site features news in Italian and English and plans to add other languages in the future – it also opened its own YouTube channel a few years ago to upload videos of Pope Benedict and various church events.

Check out a video of the Pope tweeting on an iPad below.
