Interestingly, Prince is not using a new account for his tweets. The eccentric artist took control of the existing 3rd Eye Girl account for his social-networking needs on Wednesday (Aug. 13). Instead of generic band information, followers got to see Prince having a little bit of fun.
What was the result of this coup? Well, it seems that Prince is just about as good as Twitter as he is at everything in the music world.
Fittingly, the text of Prince’s first tweet read:
“PRINCE’S 1ST TWEET… TESTING 1, 2…”
This was soon followed by another message:
“PRINCE’S 2ND TWEET.”
For the third attempt at the Twitter thing, Prince got a little more ambitious. He even included a photo:
Of course, the photo’s caption was awfully similar to those that had come before:
“PRINCE’S 3RD TWEET: DID EYE ADD 2 MUCH PEPPER?”
For those who are suspicious of just about any “celebrity” Twitter account these days, the social-networking service has confirmed that the Artist Formerly Not on Twitter is indeed real.
