As the Verge notes, however, while the Queen allegedly sent the Tweet on an iPad in front of the exhibit opening's guests, the tweet in question was sent from an iPhone.

#scandal?

In all likelihood, the Queen composed (dictated? approved?) the tweet beforehand, and the iPad business was simply for ceremonial effect. And really, who can blame her: As we all know by now, once a tweet is sent out into the ether, it's there for good.

If the Queen is going to tweet, it better be grammatically correct. Her subjects would expect nothing less.
