Pope Benedict XVI to launch personal Twitter account

London, Nov 9: Pope Benedict XVI has planned to connect with people across the globe through a new personal Twitter account.

The new Twitter account will be his own, though it is doubtful that Benedict himself will operate the account.

According to the Daily Mirror, Benedict, 85, will more likely sign off on tweets written in his name.

His spokesman said details about Benedict’s handle and other information will come when the Vatican officially launches the account.

According to the report, Benedict sent his first tweet from a Vatican account last year when he launched the Vatican’s news information portal. (ANI)
