Prince isn’t quite the latest big music star to join Twitter – he doesn’t have his own account – but he’s certainly dipping his toes in the water. Early this morning, Prince posted a series of tweets from the official account of his latest band 3rd Eye Girl. Sadly not before being told about the existence of a Caps-Lock key. “PRINCE’S 1ST TWEET… TESTING 1, 2…” was followed by “PRINCE’S 2ND TWEET.” and then (learning fast) a picture of his dinner (“PRINCE’S 3RD TWEET: DID EYE ADD 2 MUCH PEPPER?”). He went on to show a self-mocking sense of humour by posting a link to a YouTube video of 3rd Eye Girl performing (“CATCH THIS NOW B4 MY LAWYERS DEW”), ending with “1st selfie” (albeit one without, in fact, Prince appearing in the picture). “Ps. Yes, that is Prince is tweeting through @3rdeyegirl,” confirmed Twitter’s head of artist and industry relations for music Tatiana Simonian. And if you’re wondering, the live video was from an official 3rd Eye Girl YouTube account, so we’re assuming that Prince’s lawyers won’t be needing their takedown banhammer.
