London: The social media buzz this time could not even stop Queen Elizabeth II from entering the Twitter world. The Royalty for the first time tweeted in front of around 600 guests at the museum.

Queen Elizabeth II sent her first royal tweet signed as Elizabeth R at the Science Museum during the opening of a telecommunications gallery.

The "R'' stands for "regina," the Latin for queen. "It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @ScienceMuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting. Elizabeth R," the tweet read.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the Science Museum Friday to open and tour the gallery dedicated to the history of information and communications technology, Guardian reported.

A series of tweets about the Queen's use of novel communications technology during her reign has been realeased under the @BritishMonarchy Twitter account.
