Now will it be the good tweet instead of the good word?
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI on Tuesday tweeted for the first time, announcing the launch of a Vatican news information portal.
Benedict's tweet read: "Dear Friends, I just launched News.va Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI".
The portal www.news.va for the first time aggregates information from the Vatican's various print, online, radio and television media. It's the latest effort by the Vatican to bring its evangelizing message to a greater, Internet-savvy audience and follows forays into Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
