After a lifetime of shying from social media, Prince has FINALLY joined the Twitterverse ... and instantly became "that guy" who posts photos of his food.

Dammit Prince.

The singer fired off his first tweet last night under the handle, "@3rdeyegirl -- and it read, "PRINCE'S 1ST TWEET... TESTING 1,2..."

His 2nd tweet read -- "PRINCE'S 2ND TWEET."

Followed by Tweet #3 -- a photo of his over-peppered salad, with the caption, "DID EYE ADD 2 MUCH PEPPER?"

Yes, Prince ... you did.

The Purple One polished off his first string of insightful tweets with an inaugural "selfie," a close-up shot that's barely discernible as his hair.

Whatever. We're gonna follow him anyway.
