The Royal Family is now on Twitter


Don’t expect to be receiving personal Tweets from the Queen or Prince of Wales though.

A spokeswoman from the Buckingham Palace said that it had signed up to “harness the popularity of Twitter” in spreading news about the Royal Family.

The account had undergone several weeks of testing before it had went live.

The Twitter account @BritishMonarch will provide tidbits about the activities of the members of the family as well as details of their different royal engagements.

“The intention,” the spokeswoman explained, “is that it is a news service rather than a personal voice.”

Hmmmn, maybe Ashton Kutcher will convince them otherwise J
