Pope Benedict XVI to Join Twitter

L'Osservatore Romano Vatican Pool via Getty Images(VATICAN CITY) -- The Vatican announced on Thursday that Pope Benedict XVI would start tweeting from his own Twitter account.

Benedict, 85, sent a tweet last year from a Vatican account.  It’s believed that since he rarely uses a computer he will simply dictate tweets, but not type them himself.

No word yet on what the pope's new handle will be or when the account will be launched.
