Purple rain fell on the cyber-gods last night (August 13) when Prince joined Twitter. The pop legend is notoriously averse to new technology — I still struggle with the fact that you can’t watch his videos on YouTube — so when he started tweeting through the account of 3rd Eye Girl (his latest project), fans were understandably surprised.

So what does the genius behind timeless classics like “Little Red Corvette”, “When Doves Cry” and “Raspberry Beret” tweet about? Well, there were a handful of tests, a picture of his dinner (looked delicious and healthy), an unrecognizable selfie and some promo for friend/collaborator Janelle Monae‘s The Electric Lady LP. Check out Prince’s social media spree after the jump.
