Bruce Springsteen sent his very first Tweet today on the Twitter account for his official website, springsteen.net.
The tweet was sent at 3:29 p.m. and read, "Bruce here ... looking forward to seeing friends in Chile, Argentina & Brazil on tour next month. Any requests?"
Shore Fire Media, Springsteen's publicist, confirmed that it was indeed Springsteen himself tweeting, and not someone tweeting for him as happens with many celebrity's Twitter accounts these days.
Welcome to the Twitter Nation, Bruce!
