Queen Elizabeth II doffed a glove, raised a finger and posted her first ever tweet, complete with a tag and sign-off.
The digital royal wave was sent from the verified @BritishMonarchy account during the opening of the Information Age exhibit at London’s Science Museum. 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
Others were kinder.

The @BritishMonarchy account usually posts official updates on the activities of the royal family and the Queen has never tweeted from it before.
It’s not the first time the Queen has led the way for the royal family when it comes to technology.
The Queen made her first live Christmas broadcast in 1957 and she was also the first monarch to send an email in 1976.
Her Twitter debut comes about five months after her grandson Harry posted his first official tweet to promote an international sporting competition for wounded soldiers. Hope everyone will get behind #invictusgames. Great opportunity to support and thank the men and women who have given so much.
