@Pontifex sends his first tweet!

Not many people can boast to have records such as this: 1 million twitter followers before a first tweet was sent out, and the first tweet has over 57k retweets with over 20k favourites!

@Pontifex, or Pope Benedict XVI, had sent out his first tweet on 12.12.12. where he had pressed the “send” button amidst some fan fare, how else would have The Vatican done it?

The Pope’s first tweet reads “Dear friends, I am pleased to get in touch with you through Twitter. Thank you for your generous response. I bless all of you from my heart.”

If there is one lesson we’d have to take away, the lesson would have to be social media cannot be ignored.
