Welcome to the tweet age, Beyonce. The Queen B has finally used Twitter. She joined a while back and was verified, but never tweeted.
Many of her fellow pop divas like Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry tweet multiple times a day, sharing images from photo shoots and offer reports while in the studio, since they were raised in the digital generation and are a bit younger. But Bey, like Madonna, didn’t engage in 140-character conversations with fans. Until now. #Amen.
With @Beyonce as her handle, the Twitter virgin sent her first tweet out into the world today. It was simple and promotional in nature, offering a greeting to the Twitterverse and promoting her brand new website. So she is using the social networking service in a strategic way.
Hopefully Bey will share some Twitpics of Blue Ivy once she gets Twitter savvy.
Bey has certainly been embracing the direct, intimate nature of the web world when it comes to engaging her fans as of late, by offering the first photos of Blue via her Tumblr, as opposed to splashing them all over a global tabloid for a couple million.
Below is Beyonce’s debut tweet. Welcome to 140-character communication, Bey. Hurry up and follow her now.
Hey World, It’s B!I’m so excited to invite you to my new beyonce.com – we’ve been workinghard, and it’s finally ready for you XO
