You heard. Until now, Prince fans have only had the account Prince Tweets 2 U to look upon the life of the world's favourite funk machine. Unofficial and run by a comedian it was never exactly a definitive source of Prince-related information.

Thankfully, Prince has taken to the site to tweet from his group 3rd Eye Girl's account.

What's even better is he's doing it with a sense of humour. Sharing some jokes and a clip of new track 'Groovy Potential', we hope he sticks around (and more importantly RTs 2 us because we've been tweeting him all day in excitement.)

Listen to a snippet of 'Groovy Potential' below.
