With launch of new Twitter account, you can follow Prince all over again

The Prince estate has been upping its social media game.

If you're a Prince devotee and you haven't already heard, you might want to head over to Twitter — because he's got a new account you can follow. 

The new profile, which was launched on Valentine's Day, can be found under the handle @prince. The inaugural tweet included a couple pictures of the late singer and one of his quotes:

As NME reports, the Prince estate launched the account to replace the one that was "associated with Prince during his life," which will now be archived under @prnlegacy.

That account was launched in 2015 and became a place for Prince — or whoever was in charge of his very limited social media presence — to promote new goings-on in Princedom, such as concert dates and music releases.

The new Twitter profile is already fairly active, with seven tweets in two days. 

NME points out that the "renewed focus on social media" comes a few months after the estate launched a weekly series of rare and unseen music videos from the late Prince.
