The British Royals have started telling the world what they're up to using the Twitter service.
The Twitter page, British Monarchy, comes complete with the royal crest and at press time already had 1,709 followers.
The Twitter page has links to pictures on the Queen's web page, but don't expect to read rants from Prince Phillip, stories about the Corgi dogs, or who Prince Harry is shagging or which royal parties he's been to.
The whole thing is, rather unfortunately, in the best possible taste. Apart from the fact it's Twitter, that is.
