Holy Twitter! Pope sends his first tweet
The 84-year old pontiff used the iPad 2 to formally publish the new website for the first time before sending his first ever tweet.
The site – The Vatican Today – offers news and events along with pontifical acts and world news. There is even a link to listen to live Vatican Radio.
The launch of the site and the pontiff’s first tweet also coincides with His Holiness’s 60th anniversary of his ordination as a priest.
