Celebrity Twitter Account – Pope Francis
Pope Francis Twitter: @Pontifex
Pope Francis First Tweet:
Dear friends, I thank you from my heart and I ask you to continue to pray for me. Pope Francis.

We might not usually think of the Pope as a stereotypical celebrity, but @Pontifex has become a celebrity Twitter account since Pope Francis took the reins (or the keyboard) back in March.
While the first tweet that appears on the Pope Francis Twitter timeline now is the one shown above, the account also tweeted “HABEMUS PAPAM FRANCISCUM” a few days prior, which translates to: “We have Pope Francis.”
Of course, the Pope Francis Twitter doesn’t spew off your typical celebrity tweets — as we would hope from the Pope. One recent tweet read: “Confessing our sins may be difficult for us, but it brings us peace. We are sinners, and we need God’s forgiveness.”
