Just about everyone is on Instagram these days including businesses, movies, and other popular pop culture trends. On the afternoon of Monday, Dec. 2, 2013, "Star Wars" officially joined the social media picture site and decided to post their first pic and it just so happened to be a selfie of none other than Darth Vader.

You can follow along with the force at the address of @starwars.

Within a few hours on Monday, the account had over 7,000 followers. As of the morning of Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2013, there were more than 92,000 following along to see what kind of trendy pics would pop up next.

The picture shows Darth Vader holding up a smartphone and taking a selfie with a dead Stormtrooper in the background. The caption for the photo simply states:

"Another day at the office. #StarWars #DarthVader #selfies #gporn"

Perhaps the funniest thing about the pic is that Darth Vader is holding the camera in reverse fashion when he could just the front-facing camera. When it comes to Darth Vader though, it is his first selfie and he's bound to make some mistakes.

Since the Darth Vader selfie, two other pics have been posted.

One is of Luke and Vader about to do battle with the caption:

"Prepare for battle! #StarWars #BehindTheScenes #Latergram #Vadergram"

The third pic is of the Star Destroyer and doesn't have a clever caption, but it is a concept model and shows what may be to come on the account.
