A priest dances in a famous piazza in Rome surrounded by four gyrating parishioners.It was pope emeritus Benedict XVI who embraced the Internet as a forum for "dialogue and debate" and sent the first papal tweet in 2012 under the handle @pontifex -- the pope's title in Latin.Things have moved quickly since then and his successor Pope Francis now has more than 13 million people following his tweets, which are sent out in nine languages including Arabic and Latin.The campaign's Twitter account also has just over 3,000 followers for a project that only got started in February.The religious social media team is made up of 20 people divided into groups which are each assigned a social media platform.One of the dancers in the new video, Stefania Canini, a parishioner of Cascio's at San Giovanni Battista de Rossi church near central Rome, explained that she was recruited to help out in the project in a rather unusual way.
