Internet-shy celebrity Prince broke down and officially joined Twitter, which set off a wave of emotions across the social media site. He started out by announcing his first tweet, "PRINCE'S 1ST TWEET... TESTING 1, 2...," and followed up with some more Prince-like messages. 

The@3rdeyegirl Twitter account was originally created in January, but was primarily used as a marketing tool for his videos and concerts. Now, it seems that the Purple One is taking full control of the account. 

Check out Prince's tweets and some of the messages he's retweeted from fans:
