(CBS) - Yesterday, Pope Benedict XVI sent out his first tweet!
"For those who have been waiting impatiently for Rome to get its message act together, the announcement of the new portal intended to be an easy, up-to-date aggregate site for Vatican information, was a hopeful sign," says Faith & Reason blogger Cathy Lynn Grossman on USA Today.
It has been confirmed that the Pope used an iPad to fire out his first tweet ever. He said, "Dear Friends, I just launched NEWS.VA Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI."
The multimedia portal that the Pope announced in his first tweet offers the latest news of the Vatican's media services and outreach for evangelization. Right now, you can check out the site in Italian and English, but other languages will be added later.
