The Church and social media

Last-minute preparations are under way at the Vatican where the conclave to elect the new pope begins Tuesday.

The 115 cardinal electors will remain at the Sistine Chapel incommunicado from the rest of the world as they vote. In the era of social media, however, Vatican officials are taking every precaution to prevent cardinals from yielding to the temptation to tweet and text.

I thought this would a different and interesting article to post about on our blog.  Its interesting to see how different groups of people use social media.  I will be honest I didnt even know that cardinal and the pope use social media.   But in modern times I guess it makes sense that the church has one. If anyone on our blogs follows the church I would like to know what you think of their social media.
