Continuing with the 21st century theme, video of the Historic First Tweet's issuance was quickly posted to YouTube, for all the Internets to worship. Also kind of revealing that the Pope didn't actually type the Tweet, more just pressed the "Send" button, but it warms our cold digital hearts all the same:
And here's the HFT itself, via the very un-catchy Vatican handle @news_va_en:It's almost as if God himself was present in the Twitterverse today. #Humbled.
By the way, in case you didn't notice they were missing, 250 devoted L.A. Catholics are accompanying Archbishop Gomez on his weeklong trip to Rome. According to NBC LA, they're "staying at a hotel in the shadows of the Pantheon." So yeah -- 250 Angelenos get to say they were in the same city as the Pope when he birthed HFT. #Jealous.
