The Pope is on Twitter

The Pope is on Twitter

His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI fired up his iPad II and used L’Osservatore Romano‘s Twitter account to hype the Vatican online news portal:

 “Dear Friends, I just launched Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI.”

122 characters. Oh, pardon, that’s CXXII.

And you don’t have to be Catholic to follow Pope Benedict. Mirabile dictu, he’s on Facebook.
