British Royal family now on Twitter

Buckingham Palace has noted today that the British Royal Family has now joined Twitter, just another addition in the long line of big names that have joined the micro-blogging site.
The Twitter account is @BritishMonarchy and is now publicly available after spending a couple of weeks in private testing


According to the BBC, the family signed up "to harness the popularity of Twitter to spread news about the Royal Family." Among the "news" about the family will be most royal engagements and links to information on what family members are doing.
A spokesperson did note however that none of the family would be tweeting personally, and instead, "the intention is that it is a news service rather than a personal voice."
