Bismarck's Bishop Kagan joining Twitter

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Bismarck's bishop is about to start tweeting.

Bishop David Kagan says he'll begin answering questions about faith and Catholicism on Twitter as @VescovoDDK beginning Thursday.

Kagan says he decided to join Pope Benedict XVI on Twitter even though he's not very good at computers or new technology. Vescovo is the Italian word for bishop.

Kagan says he's never at a loss for words so having to limit his answers to 140 characters will be a bit of a sacrifice.

He joins a growing number of bishops, archbishops and cardinals who are now blogging, tweeting and becoming more active online.

The Pope tweets from the handle @Pontifex.
