President Donald Trump surpassed Pope Francis to become the most followed world air on Twitter, reaching the rarefied air of around 40 million followers. The pope's followers, in all languages, are slightly fewer.
Public relations firm Burson-Marsteller's latest "Twiplomacy" studyshows that Trump, with his @realdonaldtrump handle, took the top spot over the weekend from the Pope, who tweets in English from the @Pontifex account and in Spanish from @Pontifex_es. The pope also has Twitter accounts in Italian, Arabic, Polish, French, German, Portuguese and Latin.
The study tracks about 890 accounts of world leaders such as heads of state.
It is not known when the study was conducted and Burson-Marsteller did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.
