Unless you have been living under a rock lately, you’ve probably heard the head of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI, has officially joined Twitter last Monday. Since its official launch, the Pope’s twitter handle @Pontifex gained more than 500,000 followers in just 3 days. According to our prediction tool it will take 7 days (Thursday December 13th) until he reaches the magic 1 million followers milestone. But chances are that Pope Benedict XVI will reach this much sooner, as he will be attending a live tweeting event at the end of his weekly audience, on Wednesday the 12th.
We’re keeping a close eye on @pontifex’s follower growth and you can do too! Just hit the “Track” button on Pope Benedict XVI’s TwitterCounter profile and we will notify you when he reaches the 1 million milestone.
