Pope Francis (@Pontifex) on Sunday told his Twitter followers they are now more than 10 million in number.
"Dear Followers I understand there are now over 10 million of you! I thank you with all my heart and ask you to continue praying for me."
He breaks the 10 million mark by adding up all followers on his eight Twitter feeds in different languages: English (3 million), Spanish (4 million), Italian (1.2 million), Polish (139,000) and Arabic (96,000). Oh, and Latin (169,000).
