Tweets from the Holy Spirit?

Vatican Radio and other Vatican media resources will use six language accounts to share news and content about the Church.  This move is not only important for sharing information, but it is critical to have a strong presence online as part of the new evangelization.
The Twitter feeds can be accessed here:
