It appears there now is an official Twitter account for Prince: @Prince_NPG

All details here: http://prince.org/wiki/Tw...al_account

If you're too lazy to click through:

@Prince_NPG -- as mentioned by @drfunkenberry: http://twitter.com/drfunkenberry/status/177959995575508992:

New @andyallo Featuring @Prince_NPG Coming Soon! Listen Now To “People Pleaser”! http://bit.ly/ybNtXQ


He later also retweeted http://twitter.com/Room2Bleu/status/178230300864815104:

Surprised that millions haven't found @Prince_NPG yet & started following. It must be official, @drfunkenberry said so.

LOL.

I already found this twitter account, couple of months ago.. DRfunkenberry followed this account... so I already thought... it might be an official account?

Hmmm, he never tweeted so far... lol... Let's hope he changes his mind.. lol lol

Why have a twitter account & not tweet? Probably trying to decide what he wants to tell us - expectation is way up there.
pray Peace in the House of Prince.

I've thought for ages that the smartest thing he could do is create an official account, get it verified and then never tweet from it.

It would finally end all of the questions about "is @princewhatever a real account?" and fans could follow him and mention him in tweets if they really wanted to without him actually having to do anything.

Don't get me wrong - I'm up for him tweeting if he wants to, but it really doesn't strike me as something he'd be up for. If that account starts chirping, it will almost certainly be at the hand of one of the lovely ladies in his life.

I really do hope he is not on twitter/facebook (even though I do follow both of them,lol). IMO,I do not see any good coming from him tweeting/posting. An official/free website will do.

It's interesting to note that he incorporated the NPG into his official Twitter account, which might be further evidence that a Revolution reunion tour including him is a far-fetched idea. Maybe he should have gone with something like @Prince2UPaisley, similar to the Pope's recent choice. He wants to be the Pope, after all, right?

Never in a million years would I believe this to be an official Prince account. Doc is pissed off by the fake Prince_Live tweets, cause a lot of people think it's the real one. He wants to end it, so very likely he created the other account. I mean isn't it funny assuming it's really Prince he'd just follow Andy and DocFunkberry? Oh the irony! Why on earth would he wanna follow the Doc? lol

Get a grip, huh?! nuts

What would be the practical difference between a Prince Twitter account created by Dr. Funkenberry and an "official" Prince Twitter account? Dr. Funkenberry is as close to an official P.R. spokesperson as Prince has these days anyway. Would he have done this (if he did it) without Prince's blessing? I doubt it.

The practical difference would be that it says THE only official account to dismiss the other fake accounts. There are people that don't know about Doc and him being some source for Information about Prince, that is more liable than any other fake account. I had a chat with Doc a while ago, and like any other fan who knows about the Prince Live fake account, he was pissed off about it too.

I am not trying to diss Doc here, but I doubt Prince would use twitter, it should be really common knowledge by know...just my two cents of course

Edit: Sorry, I think I misread your post. Yes, I think he'd have done this without Prince's blessing (if he did) just to steer away folks from the fake account, cause this is misleading a lot of people, and I wouldn't blame him if he created the new Prince account.

Well I'm not sure if they still verify accounts with the tick anymore. And if u look at Andy Allo's account isn't verified with a tick either.
Does anyone know anything about if twitter is still verifying?

I have a twitter account and I never tweet. I'm strictly a follower. shrug

Not only do I hate twitter for the things normal people do on it, I extra-hate Twitter for what celebrities do on it. Please. DO we really need to know THIS MUCH about people?? With all the psychotic shit they spew?? What last vestiges of my illusions must be shattered now that Prince has a direct line from his lips to mine eyes???? My god, when will the overexposure of celebrity (singular) end.
