He may be the world's holiest Twitter user: The Pope is planning a papal tweet every day throughout the 40 days of Lent.

Messages from Pope Benedict XVI will be tweeted in several languages, including English, Spanish, Italian and French.

The Vatican is hoping the pontiff's messages will be re-tweeted and will have an impact on Catholics who have given up on religion or Lent.
