Pope Francis’ unprecedented address to Congress – including national political leaders and numerous presidential hopefuls – drew thousands to Capitol Hill on Thursday to hear him speak.
The leader of the Catholic Church broached some partisan topics, but mostly urged cooperation.
Twitter buzzed about the address, with many breaking it down and dissecting his message. Most PR pros approved of the speech in 140 characters or less.
