The Pope tweets!

Pope Benedict XVI sent his first tweet!!!1111111one!!!!!

His Holiness saith: “Dear Friends, I just launched Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI”

The tweet appeared on the official Twitter handle for the Vatican’s various media outlets. The Pope is pretty jazzed about this milestone, as the's top banner reads: “A HISTORIC TWEET.”

The Pope, born Joseph Ratzinger, is eighty-freakin-four — and pretty tech savvy for someone my grandmother’s age.

Our markets contributing writer Ken Sweet pointed out the video above, which shows the Pope posted his tweet with an iPad (and the help of a few papal assistants). Ken sez: "As if Steve Jobs needed more of a God complex." -Julianne
