The Pope is no stranger to Twitter and now it seems like he could be using the social networking site more often. On Monday, December 3rd, the Vatican's communication department will discuss some of its new social media plans and that could very well include more posts from Benedict XVI on Twitter.
The Pope's first tweet was sent back in June 2011, when the Vatican's website, launched its new and improved site, www.news.va. The Pope's tweet read in part “Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedict XVI.”
He used twitter again during Lent. Then for World Communications Day, the Pope made a reference to twitter, by saying that even short, concise messages, sometimes no longer than a Bible verse, can lead to provoking thoughts and deep reflections.
