No little red Corvette or even doves crying.

No, when the artist formerly known by that weird symbol Prince gave up his famous aversion to the Internet and joined the Twitter world Tuesday night, he did it by posting a photo of his dinner salad.
Read the caption: Did Eye Add 2 Much Pepper?
Hes tweeting from an account named after his latest band, 3rdEyeGirl.
The account has been active for a while, long enough to attract more than 43,000 followers. But fans knew it was actually Prince Tuesday night when he posted his first official tweet: PRINCE'S 1ST TWEET... TESTING 1, 2...
Then came the salad pic, a moody selfie of smoke billowing against a purple (of course) backdrop and a link to a snippet of a new song called Groovy Potential.
Prince fans can hardly believe whats happening.
Prince is on! breathe...I feel like I'm back at the Alger theater in #Detroit about to see #PurpleRain for the 1st time! gushed Legalogy Law Chicago (@legalogy).
When I found out Prince was on Twitter I got butterflies like I saw him at my door thru the peep hole. (sports silly grin) tweeted firstname.lastname@example.org (@yorhyness).
