Today Prince Andrew, The Duke of York became the unlikely first member of the Royal Family to open an official Twitter account (our money was on Prince Harry). @TheDukeOf York's first tweets have mainly been pictures demonstrating his patronage of students and young entrepreneurs. The responses from the rest of Twitter were far more interesting...
The Duke of York is on twitter. Strictly speaking, he really ought to have ten thousand followers to march up the social media hill.— Elizabeth Windsor (@Queen_UK) July 8, 2013
Oh.... the... Grand Old Duke Of York... he had ten thousand followers... Congratulations to @TheDukeOfYork for reaching 10K on his first day— Steve Summers (@pocketsteve) July 8, 2013
The Duke of York is on Twitter. Disappointed his 1st tweet wasn't "My 10,000th follower gets a free arms contract. Please RT".— Dave Turner (@mrdaveturner) July 8, 2013
I like to think this (including sign-off) is meant to be read as if by Ali G. “ @TheDukeOfYork: Welcome to my Twitter account - AY”— Daniel Maier (@danielmaier) July 8, 2013
@TheDukeOfYork is this Sir Andy Murray?— Rod Mickleburgh (@rodmickleburgh) July 8, 2013
