Jordan’s King Abdullah has joined Twitter one day before his country hosts the Arab League’s 34th summit in Amman.
Under the username @KingAbdullahII, he joins his wife Queen Rania who has been active on Twitter since 2009 and has amassed more than six million followers since then.
“Honored to be King Abdullah II’s first follower on Twitter. Your voice of moderation and calls for dialogue is much needed in our world today,” Queen Rania tweeted.
The King’s first tweet was posted in both Arabic and English.
