Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has personally sent her first official tweet.
The inaugural message had been re-tweeted more than four thousand times just forty five minutes later.
The 88-year-old monarch tweeted at the opening of a new modern communications gallery at London’s Science Museum.
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
