Twitter in meltdown for first royal baby of digital age

British front page headlines go from 'Our Little Prince' (Daily Mirror) to 'A Birth, A Boy, A Prince, A King' (The Guardian). One comment piece in Australia reflects on the republican versus royalist debate there. USA Today leads 'The People's Prince - the first royal baby in the digital age'. The Daily Mail says there were 487 million tweets about the royal baby ahead of the birth and 500,000 in the hours following the announcement.
