OCTOGENARIAN CYBER FREAK Pope Benedict XVI has embraced Twitter and kicked off the papal party with the words, "I just launched."

The Pope, who was launching a new Vatican web site, performed this act on an Ipad by extending a holy finger and pressing a screen while an assortment of eager hands waited around in case he wanted them to do it for him.
