London's Tate Modern Gallery will present a guided museum tour on Twitter of the major retrospective of works by Pop art master Roy Lichtenstein.

On Thursday at 12PM (EST), the museum is tweeting an image-based tour of highlights from the Lichtenstein exhibit for those who can not attend in person. A curator will tweet for 30 minutes about the history and details of the artworks, expanding on information that is already online with a more comprehensive view of the museum show.

The museum's Twitter account, @Tate, will begin the tour at noon (EST), and then follow it with a question-and-answer segment with a museum curator.

Tate has the restrospective on view in its galleries through May 27, 2013.
