Yep, Prince Was on Twitter Last Night

Forget the play-on headlines (Twitter got groovier! Funkier!): let’s just gather ourselves and deal with the awesome fact that Prince was on Twitter on Tuesday night.

Less than 24 hours ago, the Purple One took to his band 3rdEyeGirl’s account and got us all excited with self explanatory first and second tweets.


The 55-year-old’s other tweets included, of course, a food photo…

Advice for a girl just trying to make it in the big city…


A “selfie”…


And a link to a preview of his band’s new song “Groovy Potential.”

For those questioning the validity of Prince’s tweets, both Questlove and Tatiana Grace (Twitter’s Head of Artist and Industry Relations for Music) confirmed that it really was the groovy musician behind the messages.

And for those keeping track, this is the same guy who declared that the “internet’s completely over” in an interview with the Daily Mirror in 2010.

The internet’s like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good,” he said at the time.

Oh, Prince.
