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.

What a weird fuque. He needs to back into hiding. Actually, he doesn't even need to hide--nobody is looking for him anymore.

I never understood why he was considered to be so great. I saw him in Purple Rain and he just seemed like an arrogant little twit. As a Minnesotan I guess I should be proud of him, but just never knew what it was that everyone else saw in him.

NOOOOOOOO the last hold-out. It's only too much pepper if you plan on eating it.

He's incredibly talented. And maybe a little odd. In a good way ;)

I wish Prince would remain quiet and mysterious.

Writing like a 12 year old about a salad is stupid.
