The Queen Sends Her First Ever Tweet
The Queen Sends Her First Ever Tweet

The Queen has passed a major digital age milestone. She sent the first royal tweet under her name to during a visit to the Science Museum in London for a gallery opening.

Her Majesty sent the tweet from the @BritishMonarchy account and modestly signed it 'Elizabeth R.'

This isn't her first venture in the digital world. She sent her first e-mail in 1976 and personally updated a video to YouTube in 2008.

She also somewhat involuntarily joined the age of selfies back in June of this year when she was caught in a 14-year-old boy's snap during a visit to Ireland.

Check out these snaps of the Queen meeting celebs:
