Was Jesus the first person to tweet?

From my room on Toronto, I caught on CBS news this morning Cardinal Ravasi's claim that Jesus was the first person to tweet.  His sermons, the cardinal said, were "brief and full of meaning".

Funnily enough, I talked about this in a segment of my online office hours a couple of years ago, Would Jesus tweet?

Actually, this has given me a great idea for the next NT Pod.

Hi Mark - welcome to Canada. I am on the west coast so won't be at the conference. Would you indulge a question? Do you know of any textual variant that would reverse the 4th and 5th verses of the Beatitudes in Matthew? I find the Jerusalem Bible (old and new) has them reversed - and I can't find a variant for it. Thanks
