The Queen of Twitter: British Monarch Sends First Tweet

The Queen has sent her first ever tweet during a visit to the Science Museum in London.

“It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @ScienceMuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting,” she wrote, signing off her tweet with “Elizabeth R.”

The tweet was sent from the official @BritishMonarchy account, which is otherwise managed by palace officials, who confirmed that the Queen had sent the message herself.

And here’s the photo to prove it:

However, the key word here is sent. The Queen didn’t actually type the tweet, which was prewritten (by this chap, by all accounts). She simply hit the ‘send’ button on the iPad. What did you expect? She is the Queen after all.
