The Royal baby’s birth to be announced on Twitter

Has the world gone social media mad? Clarence House have announced they’ll be tweeting news of the royal arrival as it happens!

Ok, so maybe they’ll spare us all the intimate details from the delivery room but it’s thought that St James’ Palace will first let the world know about the new little prince or princess via Clarence House’s official Twitter feed.

As is customary, a notice will also be placed upon the palace gates to mark the royal baby’s arrival but we think somehow, the news will spread faster via the Twitterati!

So, if you haven’t already got a Twitter account, make sure you get one, if only be one of the first to hear the news when Kate gives birth. We’re going to be glued to our feed in the weeks running up to Kate’s official due date of July 13th.
