Pope Benedict tweets launch of news.va



Benedict XVI has sent his first tweet to announce the launch of the new Vatican website news.va.

The video above, from the indefatigably good Rome Reports points out that this is the first tweet made by a Pope. And there was I, thinking that Gregory XVI was on Twitter ;-) More to the point, they highlight that he chose to make his first published tweet in English.

Here's the tweet:
Dear Friends, I just launched News.va Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI
