Pope Benedict XVI joins Twitter in eight different languages


The Pope has now got a Twitter account over at @Pontifex and will no doubt be updating us about his crazy life in Vatican City over the next few weeks.

Not only has an English Twitter profile been set up for good ol’ Benedict XVI, but he’s following German, Spanish, Portugese, Polish, Italian, French and Arabic accounts too, presumably so he can keep everyone updated about what him and the Catholic church are up to at any given time.

He hasn’t shared anything yet, apart from a pouty Instagram photo (we’re joking, obviously), but according to sources the 12th of December is the big day he’ll be spamming us with all kinds of personal thoughts and feelings. We can’t wait.
