Big on social media: If Jesus were alive, he'd be all over Facebook and Twitter, a German Archbishop has said

"He was always looking for people, and took unusual routes to do this. Fundamentally all media are suited to bring the word of God to the people."

Zollitsch also looks like he'll be putting his money where his mouth is, adding: "Perhaps I will set up a personal account too."

This month Pope Benedict XVI joined Twitter as Pontifex. Each tweet is approved by the Pope himself (though composed by his attendants, so he won't be responsible for any typos.)
