Pope Francis now has more than 7.2 million followers on microblogging website Twitter, where his tweets are published in nine languages.

The Argentine Pope's tweets in Spanish at his @Pontifex account have the highest number of followers (some 2.73 million), followed by his English tweets (around 2.6 million).

"We cannot live as Christians separate from the rock who is Christ. He gives us strength and stability, but also joy and serenity," Francis tweeted Tuesday.
