@Pontifex

It goes without saying that Pope Francis is one of the most influential Twitter users. Tens of millions of people follow him across several accounts in different languages, and he has incredible reach on the platform. While he doesn't write his own tweets, they come from his speeches and documents and he approves all of them.
