It's hard to envision Pope Benedict XVI cranking out musings on his iPhone 5 every 20 minutes, but the pontiff has officially joined Twitter, according to reports.
At the age of 85, the Pope himself is about to be launched into the brave new world of social networking, complete with the official handle of “@pontifex”.
@pontifex already has 360,000+ followers and has yet to Tweet once. Badass.
It's easy to see why the Catholic Church, which has struggled to connect with teenagers and young adults (as have all religions) launched this initiative.
