*Looks like Prince has gotten the hang of Twitter since his first-ever “testing, one, two” tweet on Tuesday.

Since taking over the account of his female backing band 3rd Eye Girl, he’s tweeted a picture of his salad, the below guitar pic…

…and most recently, the link to a tease of his new track, “Groovy Potential.” [Scroll down to watch.]

Because of this sudden warming to anything Internet-related, fans have been hitting up Prince’s close friend Questlove of The Roots to find out if Prince is really tweeting.

“[For everyone] asking me if those tweets were real…” Questlove wrote, “Yes. Does mean that he took over… Doubt it.”

By Thursday afternoon the account had swelled to having nearly 100,000 followers.

The @3RDEYEGIRL Twitter page existed previously as the band’s outlet for posting tour updates and photos as they traveled. But this appeared to be the first time His Royal Badness took the wheel.

Listen to a preview of “Groovy Potential” below.
