Barack Obama London, May 9 (ANI): After Barack Obama and Britney Spears, Queen Rania of Jordan has become the latest high profiler to join the microblogging service Twitter.

Rania Al Abdullah, the wife of King Abdullah II, has had more than 2,000 followers and had recently updated her profile 17 times.

The 38-year-old dubbed herself as “a mum and a wife with a really cool day job” on her Twitter page while giving interesting peeps into her royal and personal life.

“Just choppered to airport to receive Pope. Husband piloting, he got acrobatic to quiet butterflies in stomach :) told u he was action man!” the Telegraph quoted one message as saying.

Another one read: “Wknd begins for us, watching Matthew McConaughey in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Glad I’m not single. It’s vicious out there!”

The royal, who was named the third most beautiful woman in the world in the 2005 top 100 of Harpers & Queen magazine, has had a long standing history of using social media sites and new web-based technologies.

She launched her own channel on YouTube with a video in which she asked people to send her their questions about Islam and the Arab world last year.

Queen Rania was also honoured with the inaugural YouTube Visionary Award at YouTube Live in recognition for her use of the video-sharing website as a platform for positive social change. (ANI)
