Pope Benedict XVI sent his first tweet this week to launch News.va, developed by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Social Communications, aggregating content and links from Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and YouTube; along with radio, TV, print, and other media outlets.
It is intriguing to compare two videos marking the papal tweet.
The first video shown here is the official piece from the Vatican’s YouTube channel. It is narrated in English, has been viewed 26,304 times and has zero comments.
English may be spoken more widely than Latin but the voiceover ruins the sanctity of the actual event, no? Do you truly need the English to comprehend the occurrence? Sometimes words are better left unsaid.
