Bruce Springsteen today sent his very first Tweet on the Twitter account for his official website, springsteen.net.
The tweet, sent at 3:29 p.m., 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 a celebrity's Twitter account.
Welcome to the E Tweet Nation, Bruce!
