#ShortNews: Pope Francis: 40 million Twitter followers and counting

“40 million followers means 40 million people, 40 million hearts, minds, and passions,” said Msgr. Viganò, the Prefect of the Secretariat for Communication. “It is a world, a relationship, a community: this figure emphasizes that so many people continue to follow, day after day, even by way of [140-character bursts], the Pope’s Magisterium, which reaches people [It. si dipana] in very different ways: from official speeches, to unscripted encounters, to Twitter characters,” Msgr. Viganò said.

Msgr. Viganò also said, “The Church is born when the Holy Spirit overwhelms the disciples and opens the doors of the Upper Room and they take to the streets of the world. Today, among these streets are the so-called social communities. That is why the Pope is very attentive to this reality: because any relationship needs care, which is to say cor urat, that is, ‘to warm the heart’ even through a few letters.”
