Within minutes of the announcement from the royal family that Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting a child came a flurry of Twitter handles spoofing the news.

Twitter names including "RoyalFetus," "RoyalFoetus," and "IamRoyalBaby" all began Tweeting about imaginary life inside the womb.

The iPad mini was developed solely so I would be able to Tweet my gestation live from the womb. So, that's why that exists! #royalbaby

The palace announced that the royal couple are expecting a child and that Middleton is in the "very early stages" of pregnancy. She was admitted into a hospital today for treatment of hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute form of morning sickness which requires supplementary hydration and nutrients, the palace said.

The child will be third in line to the throne, after Prince Charles and Prince William.

The Twitter handle @IamRoyalBaby said that it may have the upper hand in the emerging Twitter wars over the newest royal.

I think @ royalfoetus has anticipated his own demise by choosing such a short sighted handle. Only babies may leave the royal womb #Royalbaby

The infant also felt the need to one-up his or her soon-to-be uncle, Prince Harry, who will be bumped to fourth in line to the throne with the baby's birth.

@ prince___harry So… fourth in line now. How quaint.
