"Dear Friends, I just launched http://www.news.va/en. Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI."

That was Pope Benedict's first tweet on the Vatican News Twitter page: @news_va_en. The portal news.va combines information from the Vatican's print, online, radio, and television media.

Benedict put the site online himself by tapping an iPad, said Thaddeus Jones, project coordinator and an official with the Pontifical Council for Social Communications. Moments later the pope sent his first tweet.
