Her Majesty The Queen has just sent out her very first tweet.

Queen Elizabeth II tweeted that it's a pleasure to open the Science Museum's new Information Age Gallery. She sure hopes everyone will enjoy it.

Who's Elizabeth R? The "R" stands for "regina", latin for Queen. It's how the Queen signs things in an official capacity.

And if you were skeptical about it really being her...

The popular Queen has racked up over 19,000 retweets and 17,000 favorites in just over five hours after posting her first tweet. While not quite Pope-like numbers, it's a pretty good entrance to the Twitterverse.
