Queen Elizabeth II Tweets for the First Time

Saturday, October 25, 2014 | 12:42am |  | Mashable

Queen Elizabeth II sends her first Tweet during a visit to the 'Information Age' Exhibition at the Science Museum on October 24, 2014 in London, England.

Though she still doesn't have a personal Twitter account, Queen Elizabeth II, the monarch of the United Kingdom, has tweeted for the first time.

The Queen tweeted from the official account of the British Monarchy after opening the Information Age exhibition at London's Science Museum on Friday. The tweet, below, is signed "Elizabeth R."

While this tweet by the British monarch is a pretty straightforward affair, it's an important milestone. In March 1976, Queen Elizabeth became the first monarch to send an email. She also broadcast her first Christmas message live on radio in February 1952. It'll be interesting to see whether this tweet was a one-time thing or if the Queen will continue to be active on Twitter.
