Against All Odds, Pope Benedict XIV Joins Twitter

Did you ever think you’d see the day the Pope joins Twitter? Under the handle @PopeBXIV, Pope Benedict XIV is now vying for your follows and retweets. In what might be considered Catholicism’s Twitter co-sign, the head of the Catholic Church will send messages from this personal account in hopes of providing spiritual guidance to a new generation of young people. Not always known as the most forward thinking institution, this is a step in the right direction for the Catholic Church’s viral presence.

While Pope Benedict XVI is technically in charge of his personal Twitter account, he mostly writes in long hand, and reports suggest he will have a ghost-tweeter.

Regardless of who will be manually typing the 140 character notes, Pope Benedict XVI will sign off on tweets from his account. Right now, he has 17,300 followers and has tweeted 6,723 messages.
