The Pope is coming to Instagram
Pope Francis, the head of the Catholic Church, has announced his intention to head to the social photo sharing platform
The Pope is heading to Instagram y'all, and the internet makes sense yet again!
Pontiff Pope Francis, Jorge Mario Bergoglio to his friends, has announced that he's set to make his move to Instagram on Saturday the 19th of March. It will be a moment for the ages, as he takes up the mantel of Franciscus, a title derived from St Francis of Assisi. The 79 year old Argentinean will be appearing on the social photo sharing platform after already making waves on Twitter, where he can preach to his billion plus congregation in less than 140 characters.
We agree with the underlying tweet.
Pray for me.— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) March 13, 2016
It's not yet known what kind of images the Pope will be sharing, but we're really hoping that it's all just selfies of the famous folks he's met, or a shedload of photobombs he's been working on over the last few years.
