In a visit to the Science Museum in London today, the Queen of England sent her very first tweet.
The monarch has had a verified Twitter account for some time now, but this is the first tweet that she sent herself. It was sent to mark the opening of the Science Museum's new "Information Age" exhibit about technology and the internet.
It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @ScienceMuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting. Elizabeth R.
