In 2010, Prince told The Mirror that the internet is "completely over."

"The internet's like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated," the seven-time Grammy Winner said. "Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers."

Then on Tuesday, Prince took control of the verified handle @3rdeyegirl, named for the all-female musical trio who have been touring with him this year.

The account has 98,000 followers and counting.

At first, Prince tread lightly:
