The Video You’ve Been Waiting For: Pope Benedict Tweets From His iPad!

Did you ever think you’d see this?

What a cool pope.

    We are so lucky to have a very Holy Pope, very clever, and willing to learn the latest in IT. Love you Holy Father.

    this is amazing! I never thought I would RT the Holy Father.
    Well, maybe in 30 years after Twitter became the new MySpace, but… :)

    I’ve been anxiously awaiting every since they unveiled that teaser @ the Vatican Blog meeting.

    Whoop! Whoop! Hands in the air for Benedict!! He is totally cool. As for me I am the perfect paradigm of the uncool, I never “tweeted” my entire life. I have been know to “chirp” after a bottle of rosso and about 8 beers (long story, oldest sisters wedding reception. Trust me you don’t want to know, I was in hot water with her for a week after)

      Hey Davide- it’s never to late to tweet! If the Holy Father can do it, so can you!
