Great but a problem

Great, but when seeing the twitter add on window, if you view the popes tweets, and go to retweet it with your own account it always exceeds the character limit.... maybe due to the picture that is automatically added by your app? I cannot manage to fix it. Please correct this.

Nice app!

Keep up the good work!

Really Nice Way To Follow His Holiness.

For some reason the app no longer works. When you open it you only see a screen with pulsating rings. UPDATE 11/06/2017 - App works fine now. Must have been a server-side issue.
