During our visit inside the Vatican, we learned pope Francis has never used a computer or even owned a cell phone. But he is certainly on Twitter. Tweets approved by him -- 22 million followers. In fact, he is the most retweeted leader in the world. More than president Obama, who tweeted himself today -- to the pope. "Welcome to the white house, @pontifex! Your messages of love, hope, and peace have inspired us all." Pope Francis, the first to take a selfie. And so many American families along the route today know that, documenting his every move. Reporter: These two young girls snapping a selfie today with pope Francis. One photo with an 11-year old boy he will never forget. Even inside St. Matthews, bishops there for a prayer service capturing the moment, too. Amid all the flashes in the oval office, the pope and the first family's D dogs, Bo and sunny. And likely photos tomorrow when he boards his flight for new York City. An American airlines crew chosen to take him to New York. The plane dubbed "Shepherd one."
