Royal Family turns to Twitter
The Royal Family is latching on to the social networking phenomenon, Twitter.
The Royals have laid claim to the @BritishMonarchy account on the social-networking site, but anyone expecting a Tweet from the Queen herself is set to be sorely disappointed.
A spokesman for the Palace told the BBC that the Royal Family intends to use Twitter as a “news service rather than a personal voice”, immediately snuffing out speculation about how the Queen was going to condense the Christmas speech into 140 characters.
Early messages on the Royal Family’s account provide a rather dry summation of duties, such as timings of the changing of the guard, royal visits and the distribution of honours.
Curiously, the Royal Family are only followng three people: tennis star Andy Murray, someone called Paul Fright, and the Copenhagen Communique (which claims to “represent a progressive business consensus in support of an ambitious deal in Copenhagen”).
