Sarah Ferguson vows to tweet more


Sarah Ferguson has vowed to be more active on social networking sites.

The Duchess of York took to her Twitter account to thank her 70 000 followers for their "touching" messages on her 54th birthday this week on Tuesday, and she’s promised to tweet a lot more in the future.

She wrote: "Thank you to all my kind followers who wished me Happy Birthday. I am very touched and hope to be back tweeting more regularly."

Sarah has posted just 431 tweets on the social networking site after joining more than a year ago, using the micro-blogging page selectively to promote her charity work and praise her family.

Earlier this year, the duchess was full of praise for her ex-husband Prince Andrew ? who joined Twitter himself in July ? and the work he does on trips abroad representing the British royal family.

She wrote: "I’m so proud of Prince Andrew, The Duke of York, for succeeding in a gruellingly busy trip to India.

"Great Britain should know of his commitment and hard work for this country!

"Yesterday HRH visited The Stone of Remembrance in Kohima [India] to lay a wreath in memory of all the war victims.

"The Duke has been a hit in India and has made such an impact on behalf of the UK. India is so taken with him."

Last year, Sarah took to Twitter to reveal how proud she was of her and Andrew's daughter, Beatrice, for graduating from the University of London's Goldsmiths College, in New Cross, south east London, with a 2:1 [second class, upper division] degree in history. She wrote: "Beatrice graduating from Goldsmiths today. So proud of her achievement. As all mothers/parents are, well done all graduates." Share your thoughts:
