Watch The Pope Tweet From An iPad [Video]

By punching a big, conspicuous button on an iPad, Pope Benedict XVI has just launched the new official Vatican news site. Then he sent a tweet from the official Twitter app and afterwards a bunch of old men kissed his knuckles. Between this and Google+, it was a big day for technology.

    How is the Pope tweeting “a big day for technology”? I couldn’t care less, and it doesn’t affect how I use technology at all. Slightly bizarre to me…

    I’ll suggest you a series of 6 injections of Ironilax. It works like magic for severe cases of irony detection deficiencies, just like yours

    Like any old people he keeps pushing the button for several seconds. You say to them “Okay. Now click this button.” Cliii…ick. Copy/Paste pops up. “No, let it go. Just click it.” “Damn it.”

    And who are those people on lock screen.
