Times have definitely changed and it has never been more apparent than in the latest news of the Pope tweeting. Yes, you read that correctly. Pope Benedict XVI tweeted for the first time today, the Vatican has confirmed.

We found this interesting news on PEACE FM Online in their article, “Pope Tweets For First Time.” The Pope’s inaugural tweet announced the launch of news.va, a Vatican news and information portal. The tweet was sent from the Vatican News Twitter account, with roughly 12,000 followers.

Humorously or not, Vatican officials felt the need to specifically state that Benedict used his own finger to send the tweet on a touchpad.
