No, His Holiness The Pope already did that. This time it was another famous person with a lofty title: "Her Majesty Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and of Her other Realms and Territories, Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith" - Queen Elizabeth II, to the rest of us.
The Queen was opening the new Information Age gallery at the Science Museum in London today, which is decidedly more our sort of thing.

Her madge is a bit late to Twitter, but has been an early adopter in the past: she sent her first Christmas message on television in 1956 and sent her first email way back in 1977.
According to Twitter, Queen Rania of Jordan was the first serving monarch to have her own Twitter account. Other British royals using social media include Prince Andrew the Duke of York, William and Kate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Princess Beatrice.
