No. It's never been Prince, and will never be Prince. Do people really think Prince is going to tweet? LOL Come on!

And think about it...why would Prince have a twitter, and his "home page" be Prince.org?????

Yet another one to add to http://prince.org/wiki/Twitter . Sigh... Who are the sad people who do this? And why are people dumb enough to believe it's a real account?

haha. He's still writing songs that mention using a pager. The only tweet he knows about are from the little birds that sing in his head when he goes to his happy place.

For the guy that pretty much forecast the use of computers to distribute music, he sure as hell seems to have got into a rut technology wise, bless him.

Seriously guys this is pissing me off. A bunch of people are asking me if it's real. I don't like the thought of there being people out there that think this is really Prince when it is not.

My advice - let's all report the account:

impersonation@twitter.com - email them and let them know.

I've emailed them but I don't know if it'll do much good, apparently they need to hear from the person being impersonated or an authorized representative.

I've got in touch with Anthony Malzone, hopefully he will be able to sort it out.

I found it interesting that whoever is posting there mentions that he is waiting for Twitter to verify this account. Obviously if it's not Prince that won't happen.
The writing style doesn't look Prince-like enough for me to believe it's really him. If it really is Prince, which I doubt, he should maybe post a link to a new track (or a sample of a new track, maybe even something from the vault), or just something to prove he's the real deal.

I can MAYBE understand the more casual (and gullible) fan thinking this Twitter account is actually Prince.

But-- COME ON! Anybody with barely functional critical thinking skills and an ounce of sense..AND who is a longtime fan familiar with how Prince is and does things..there is no way such a person could buy this Twitter as being Prince. lol lol lol

As evidence, tweets (geez I hate that dumb word lol) such as:

"I NEED MY FANS SUPPORT!!! #PRINCE IS NOW ON TWITTER SPREAD THE WORD!! RT FOLLOW @PRINCE_OFFICIAL"
This is posted every few tweets. Prince wouldn't 'grovel' that way and ASK for 'fans support' like that!

"RT @hillaryd3: @PRINCE_OFFICIAL YOU SEXY MOTHER***KER!!!!"
Would Prince really retweet this? He who no longer condones swearing? Really? lol

"SO WHAT CITY ARE U FROM? IM STARTING A TOUR SOON"
Um, yeah. Prince would just casually announce something like that...ON TWITTER. AND ask for fan input as to where to go. Um, yeah. lol

"THANKS GUYS I HAVE TO GO I WILL TALK TO YOU GUYS SOON...LOVE YOU ALL"
Whomever is trying (badly) to impersonate Prince is waaay overusing the "love you all" and "guys". Somehow, as loving as Prince may be, I don't see him constantly saying "Love you, guys!" all the time to people in real life OR on the internet. lol (btw, sometimes this impersonator remembers to use "u" instead of "you", sometimes not. Step up your game, impersonator, you're dropping the ball)

Lastly, while clearly a typo, this tweet is hilarious.. falloff
"I LOVE GUYS
4:51 PM Jan 31st from web"


Oh, and regarding the bio section:
"Prince Rogers Nelson (born June 7, 1958) American singer, songwriter, musician and actor"

Yeah, Prince would use, as his bio, a list of boring factoids, including his birthdate, a date which he doesn't even recognize in his real life. lol

I notice too that prince.org is no longer listed as this account's homepage. Guess they read that that was a dumb move and only took away from their credibility as being Prince (as if there isn't already enough evidence that does that)

I'm betting this person doesn't understand what being verified on Twitter means. Either that, or they think stating a few times that they're waiting on being verified adds to the credibility of their ruse.

This entire sham is so poorly executed! lol lol

I think it's a Michael Jackson fan projecting his love for MJ onto Prince! eek

Seriously! Here's the give-a-way:

# I LOVE U MORE about 20 hours ago from web


That and the LOVE U GUYS...that's not Prince speak, that's Michael Jackson-ese! lol eek disbelief lol

Anthony Malzone is on the case to get this removed. Hopefully it'll be taken down with the quickness.

I can't decide who is more pathetic - the person behind that phony Twitter account, or the 'followers' who think it's actually Prince.

It's astounding to me that anybody would think Prince would have a Twitter account in the first place...but then the stuff posted on there should be the clincher that it ISN'T him.

Like this post from earlier today: "do u think i tweet 2 much? im still new sorry guys" (AGAIN with the "guys" rolleyes)

Based on the language used, it's my opinion that whomever is behind this fake twitter is a young female.
