After his first tweet the Pope followed up with a few more tweets. He tweeted, “How can we celebrate the Year of Faith better in our daily lives?” asked one. The answer: “By speaking with Jesus in prayer, listening to what he tells you in the Gospel and looking for him in those in need.”

Following his first tweet, the Pope gained over 700,000 followers on his English Language speaking twitter page. The Pope is also tweeting in other languages like Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic.
