(12-03 19:22)

Pope Benedict XVI will join Twitter from December 12, with regular tweets in eight languages from the account @pontifex just in time for Christmas, the Vatican said today.
“The first tweets will be answers to questions sent to the pope on matters of faith. The public can start sending them starting now,'' the Vatican said, adding that tweets would be in Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish, AFP reports.
