She wants some of that sweet political social media spotlight

Queen Elizabeth II of England is the longest-reigning monarch alive today.

Even at the age of 90, she’s still spritely, and she’s happy to get out of Buckingham Palace to associate with her countrymen and world leaders alike. But with all of that face-to-face socializing, she’s left with little time to work on her social media skills. She does feel that having Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts is going to be necessary as more and more kings, queens, and presidents take to the public forums to talk shop. So she’s posted up a job listing for a royal social media maven that can conduct her Internet interests for her, granted that they always take the high road just like Her Majesty would do.
