The Queen's Hiring Someone To Do All Her Tweeting

The Queen's Hiring Someone To Do All Her Tweeting

£30,000 a year as well...

If you're in the market for a new job and you love Tweeting, look no further.

The Queen's looking for someone to handle her Twitter account. The only catch is that it's just maternity cover, so you'd be expected to start in March 2017 and finish up February 2018. However, once you've handled the personal Tweets of someone as universally well-known as the Queen then I'm pretty sure you could walk into any social media job.

Don't worry if you're more of a YouTube or Facebook fan, you'd be expected to look after them too.


The online advert states: "The role of Royal Communications is to engage a worldwide audience with the public role and work of The Royal Family. Joining this fast paced and dynamic team, your challenge will be to manage and oversee the daily news flow on digital and social networking platforms, as well as play a key part in some of the digital projects.

"Working as part of a small team of digital media specialists, you'll create content for social networking and digital platforms, including our newly launched website, as well as researching and writing feature articles.

"Whether you're covering a state visit, award ceremony or Royal engagement, you'll make sure our digital channels consistently spark interest and reach a range of audiences.

"With an eye to the future, you'll help hone and shape our digital communications through analytics, monitoring and exploring new technologies.

"The reaction to our work is always high-profile, and so reputation and impact will be at the forefront of all you do. And having your work shared around the world will be the biggest reward."

Oh wow, you have to write articles?! I could definitely do that, despite what 99% of the comments sections on our website say.

You need to be university educated, as well as have experience of managing websites. Plus, have experience of creating and publishing digital and social media content.

Plus you get 33 days annual leave.

Not bad, not bad at all.

She Nearly Got Shot By One Of Her Own Guardsmen

Queen Elizabeth clearly gives zero fucks as she once nearly got shot by one of her own guardsmen during a 3am stroll.

Apparently the she loves her night recreationals, often walking around the palace gardens in the wee hours. Meanwhile, for the rest of us that isn't an option unless we want cheesy chips launched at our heads.

Anyway, apparently the guardsman said: "Bloody hell, Your Majesty. I nearly shot you", to which she replied: "That's quite all right.

"Next time I'll ring through beforehand so you don't have to shoot me."


The Times shared the incident which reportedly took place a few years ago.

As she's now 90 years old, the chances are that she won't be caught walking around the gardens at 3am.
