Last Wednesday, Pope Benedict XVI got a Twitter account, @Pontifex, which you may have read about from such venerable, Vatican news sources as DaTechGuy and The Other McCain. But did you know that he also has a YouTube channel?
To commemorate the occasion, the Vatican YouTube channel released a video entitled, “Benedict XVI now on twitter,” which documents the experience.
According to The New York Times, the Pope is expected to tweet in various languages and use the platform to to engage with the Roman Catholic Church’s 1.2 billion followers.
