It’s a historical day on the British Isles, as this morning Her Majesty The Queen tweeted her first tweet.

Her message, which was sent on behalf of the Science Museum, read: ‘It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @ScienceMuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting. Elizabeth R.’

So, you know, it wasn’t the best, but she did sign it off ‘Elizabeth R’, so that stopped it from being a total snore.

But what was she thinking as she typed? We reveal* all.

In true blue blooded spirit, HRH dived right in…

But once it was live, she knew.

And then, suddenly, she was overwhelmed with the sense that she HAD to know when she was going to have the chance to tweet again. Yes, she was a twitter convert, and nothing would ever be the same again.
