Yes, you read that headline correctly!

Apparently the Vatican isn’t satisfied with Pope Francis’ paltry 2.7 million Twitter followers, so they’re staging a campaign to boost his numbers.

If you decide to follow @Pontifex during World Youth Day, which takes place in Brazil July 23-28, the pope will bestow upon you a “plenary indulgence,” which reduces the amount time you have to spend in purgatory after death.

Wait a minute…it’s like a Disneyland fastpass!

That got us thinking, who would we be surprised to find out had more followers than the Pope? Carson and Producer Angie ran through a few of their favorites:

Whole Foods has an impressive 3.4 million followers, Snooki is tweeting to an audience of 6.3 million, heck, even Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun clocks in with 2.8 million.

Carly Rae Jepsen, who sang one song, has more followers than the pope…by a lot!,” Carson pointed out.

  • Will you follow @Pontifex next week to snag one of those indulgences? Let us know in the comments section!
