Jesus was 'world's first tweeter', says Vatican cardinal!!!

Jesus Christ was the world's first tweeter because his pronouncements were "brief and full of meaning", Vatican cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi said on Wednesday.

Christ "used tweets before everyone else, with elementary phrases made up of fewer than 45 characters like 'Love one another'", said Monsignor Ravasi, the Vatican's equivalent of a culture minister.

"A bit like in television today, he delivered a message through a story or a symbol," the cardinal said at a conference with Italy's leading newspaper editors.

The cardinal emphasised the importance of clergy making full use of modern-day computer technology.

 "If a cleric, a pastor is not interested in communication, they are defying their duty," he said. Full story...
