The Pope Didn't Technically Send That First Tweet Himself

By Brian Barrett on at

When the Pope tweets, people listen. And watch, apparently. And... applaud? Sure, why not! Here's Benedict XVI, in all his divine glory, sending out his first 140-character missive to the massive.

Well, okay, technically the hovering Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli hit send. And someone else maybe probably typed it into the iPad for him, since the pope writes all his sermons by hand. But still. A nice sentiment, and lovely moment, and a minor nerd controversy all wrapped up into one. What's not to like? [Mashable]
