Twitter: British Monarchy

This has got to be historic. Twitter: British Monarchy has the official Twitter stream for the British Monarchy, featuring news and updates about Royal events.

If only King John had had Twitter. Maybe good PR would have prevented the Magna Carta...

All credit to the monarchy for making the most of new media.

However I have to say I find it a pity that whoever makes these kinds of decisions still thinks it's a good idea to refer to the monarchy as the "British" Monarchy on these kind of international online profiles. You would think if they were serious about maintaining a monarchy shared by sixteen different nations, they would realise the Queen needs to be seen as equally the Queen of Canada etc as of Britain, instead of treating these places as barely-remembered afterthoughts.
