"An insightful, comprehensive, and timely book that engages the genius of Pope Francis through his tweets. A must read: The #TweetablePope!"--Miguel H. Diaz PhD, US Ambassador to the Holy See, Ret., John Courtney Murray University Chair in Public Service, Loyola University Chicago "To say that Pope Francis is reaching millions with his tweets is a statistic. To explain why he is reaching millions is authentic education and new evangelization. O'Loughlin masterfully offers the background, context and foreground of Pontifex's brilliant method of communicating with the world."--Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, CEO of Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation "The Tweetable Pope is full of fresh and fun insight into the modern mission of Pope Francis. A must-read for anyone-Twitter user or not-who wants the scoop on how the first Pope from the Global South is making history."--Elizabeth Dias, TIME correspondent and editor of What Did Jesus Ask? "O'Loughlin is one of the most talented young Catholic writers today. His theological training and journalistic skills make him an astute observer of the church. His new book, examining Pope Francis's daily Tweets from a spiritual standpoint, is sure to be a valuable addition to reflections on this extraordinary pope."--James Martin, New York Times bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything and Jesus: A Pilgrimage
