Seems like the Pope is a given for a Nobel Peace prize.
I wish that he, or some other Christian leader, was the most influential and I imagine that he wishes that as well.
However, the evidence does not point in that direction.
"U.S. President @BarackObama is still the most followed world leader on Twitter with 33,510,157 followers as of 1 July 2013 and is the fourth most popular account in the Twitterverse, just behind Lady Gaga. Pope Francis is the second most followed world leader with 7,200,332 followers on his nine different @Pontifex accounts. The White House is in third position with 4,018,510 followers @WhiteHouse and the @LaCasaBianca accounts combined. Turkish President Abdullah Gül (@cbabdullahgul) and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (@RT_Erdogan) are among the top five most followed world leaders with 3.4 million followers each."

He also is the second most-followed leader of the world, running behind -- albeit by a long stretch -- U.S. President Barack Obama.
