The Royal Family's Official Twitter Account Tweeted and Deleted

This morning, Queen Elizabeth II's official Twitter account — @royalfamily — wrote "Thanks." And just about every one of its 4.3 million followers wondered exactly what the queen could have been thankful for. Though the cryptic (and very polite) message was only up for six minutes, it managed to earn 1,260 likes and 591 retweets. Twitter account Gert's Royals was quick enough to grab a screenshot of the post before it disappeared forever.

Though it was obviously accidental, followers seemed happy to get a message from the royals.

"Well it’s about time I got some recognition!" a commenter said, according to The Daily Mail.

Another wrote, "You're welcome Liz, and I've kept the receipt in case you want to change it kid, OK?"

E! News reports that the royal social media accounts, which include @royalfamily, @buckinghampalace, @clarencehouse, and @kensingtonroyal, were recently given an update. Back in March 2019, the various accounts published a set of new guidelines for anyone interacting with them after rumors started to swirl over a feud between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. 

The new regulations stated that the royal family's social media accounts must not "contain spam, be defamatory of any person, deceive others, be obscene, offensive, threatening, abusive, hateful, inflammatory or promote sexually explicit material or violence." Additionally, posts are not allowed to promote "discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age." The guidelines also noted "off-topic, irrelevant or unintelligible" content, though there wasn't anything about saying thank you for no reason at all.
