Benedict XVI Pope longer yesterday, after announcing his resignation 17 days ago. Well, with the vacancy, the account @ Pontifex had been the digital presence of the pontiff was “vacant”.

Although it was said that the account would be closed instead chose the Vatican delete all messages sent by the Pope and change the name “Benedict XVI” to “Vacant” in addition to remove your photo.

Benedict messages were transferred to a special page of the Vatican if someone wants to see, but all the retweets and favorites that made people far gone to delete everything. @

Pontifex only sent 37 messages (even in nine different languages​​). The fate of the bill will now depend on who takes over as new pope, they may choose to keep it, not tweet, or perhaps create another.

The last tweet:
