Queen Elizabeth has joined Twitter, and her first tweet is just as perfectly proper as she is.
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.
The message immediately spawned its own hashtag #TheQueenTweets, and predictably, the Twitter world was fascinated.
