Francis has tripled the number of papal twitter followers since he became pope in March. There are 10 million watching tweets from @pontifex.
To put it in secular terms, that means Pope Francis is more popular than the New York Times, Simon Cowell and Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian and just behind Kanye West and Charlie Sheen, the Daily Mirror reports.
There are nine @pontifex accounts: English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Portuguese, Arabic, Polish and Latin.
Followers in Spanish are the largest at four million; English in second at three million; and Italian in third with more than a million.
