Pope Benedict, 84, Sends His First Twitter Message on IPad

Pope Benedict XVI, who at 84 still handwrites his speeches rather than use a computer, today used an Apple Inc. iPad to send his first post on Twitter.

The pontiff tapped in English on the tablet device: “Dear Friends, I just launched News.va. Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI.”
