Elizabeth has sent her first ever tweet at the opening of a new science exhibition in London.
At age 88, she would be forgiven for eschewing modern technology, but the Monarch tweeted just after 11.30am this morning:
It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @ScienceMuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting. Elizabeth R.— BritishMonarchy (@BritishMonarchy) October 24, 2014
The official British Monarchy Twitter account immediately confirmed that the Queen herself had indeed sent the message.
And people are loving it; the reaction has been fantastic so far:
I hope the Queen isn't on her phone all the way through her Christmas speech this year. #TheQueenTweets— Ed Brody (@chiefbrody1984) October 24, 2014
