Tweeting in 9 languages to over 26 million people, the 266th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis, tweets miniature sermons of fewer than 140 characters to followers all across the world. Looking at all of Pope Francis' tweets, Boston Globe journalist, and Catholic commentator, Michael O'Loughlin examines how the latest head of the Catholic Church has embraced twitter and is rebranding an institution which proudly preserves 2,000 years of tradition and history. arranged around some of the issues raised in the Pope's Twitter feed - justice, poverty, the environment, mercy - The Tweetable Pope offers a remarkable insight into an institution stepping out towards the modern world. Thoughtfully following in the Pope's footsteps, O'Loughlin's books teaches us how to live a life centred on God and provides a unique insight on the first ever direct line to the Head of the Catholic Church who has tweeted out such mini-sermons as: 'In today's society, in which forgiveness is so rare, mercy is ever more important.' - 2:15AM, 22 Jan 2016 'Christians and Muslims are brothers and sisters, and we must act as such.' - 1:00AM, 30 Nov 2015 'Vanity not only distances us from God: it makes us look ridiculous.' - 3:45AM, 31 Oct 2015 #TweetablePope
