The queen sent her historic message while visiting the Science Museum in London to open their Information Age gallery — and her outfit even matched the Twitter logo. Obviously.
Of course, a busy monarch does not have much time to craft the perfect social media message, so her tweet was actually pre-written — all the queen had to do was press the "tweet" button.
Here's what it said:
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 message immediately spawned its own hashtag #TheQueenTweets, and predictably, the Twitter world was fascinated.
I love how she even matched her outfit to the colour of the Twitter logo. Such style and class. #TheQueenTweets— Dr Paul Coxon (@paulcoxon) October 24, 2014
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
