While we probably won’t see Queen Elizabeth live-tweeting “Scandal” anytime soon, the 88-year-old British Monarch did send her first personal tweet today from an account managed by the palace, signing it “Elizabeth R.”

The guest tweet was sent at the opening of the London Science Museum’s newest gallery, which explores the technological breakthroughs of modern communication—like telephones, email and yes, even Twitter.
