Pope opening Twitter account

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI will start tweeting from his own, personal Twitter account, perhaps before the end of the year, a Vatican spokesman said Thursday.

The 85-year-old Benedict sent his first tweet from a Vatican account last year when he launched the Vatican’s news information portal.

The new Twitter account will be his own, though it’s doubtful Benedict himself will wrestle down his encyclicals, apostolic exhortations and other papal pronouncements into 140-character bites.

Benedict, who writes longhand and does not normally use a computer, more likely will sign off on tweets written in his name.
