‘Trolls attacked the Queen almost immediately after she posted her first tweet.
She made the historic post, signing off as Elizabeth R, from London’s Science Museum as she opened an Information Age exhibition celebrating advancing technologies.
But Her Majesty’s account was immediately target by vicious trolls, who posted such vindictive comments as “F*** off and die”.
The Queen had pressed a button on a tablet to send the pre-typed message from the official @BritishMonarchy Twitter account.
It read: “It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @ScienceMuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting. Elizabeth R.”
Within minutes, the Queen had thousands of re-tweets.’
