Someone tweeted from Prince's account then deleted it

Saw on FB. Changed the bio to read: The official Twitter account of Prince Rogers Nelson 1958 - ETERNITY and then posted a tweet that said thanx 4 the outpouring of l💜Ve U continue 2 show the one and only Prince #princeforever. Tweet has been deleted and bio is back to what it was before.

Don't know if this was Tyka or who, but thank god they had the sense to delete and change it back. Unfortunately not before some fans saw it. sad Setting up social media accounts for the tribute concert or for remembering his legacy is fine but they have to be new accounts IMO. His accounts need to remain as they were, they need to remain sacred.

I agree, the accounts need to be left as they are. I saw that on Facebook too.

Thank you Prince for every note you left behind 💜

A few people on Facebook are convinced it was Tyka, but I don't know.

It seems way too weird, out of the blue and nonsensical. I'm pretty sure she would of somehow had an idea of how the fans would of reacted to this without any proper signage as to who had made the tweet. She could of signed it as '-Tyka and family' or something.

A lot of Twitter accounts seem to have been hacked recently- seemingly from the Prince community too. Mine was gotten into somehow but I saved it before anything other than a profile pic and name change happened. However, someone I follow had theirs hacked and their account started posting porn and stuff.

✿Prince and lawsuits. Still a better love-story than Twilight. ✿

Above screenshot actually really upset me to look at. They shouldn't do that. Especially typing in that style. It's like getting a phone call from someone putting on a dead relative's voice.

yeahthat That just gutted me. A total mind f*ck. I wish whoever did that would've done it under their own page or started a new 1. I feel weird enuff when I look at his Twitter and IG accounts. It's like U can feel his presence still it's odd. 2 do this was a bad move. sad This week just keeps bringing the punches.

Whoever did this - please do not operate the account as if you were Prince. In fact, don't use the account at all. It has nothing to do with the shoes being filled, the lock on his persona is completely wrong and shows they don't know Prince whatsoever. Prince was full of complex contradictions, but he would never blatantly, directly describe himself as "the greatest ever" or somesuch. He might brag about his music prowess (within a song) but when it came to himself (directly) he seemed deeply shy about bragging. In recent years the man was very clear with others - he didn't want his face photographed.

Well someone just blew it big time because that's just crystal clear evidence that someone other than Prince had access to his Twitter account and could have very well been actually "tweeting" as Prince all along.

The systematic destruction of Prince's legacy continues. disbelief

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Please do not F**ck with me with this stuff. Don't know what the intention is and maybe someone thinks they are doing something nice, but it's weird and painful. I am trying to cope and mourn. Stuff like this is not helpful.

..Hello, who is it?
Yes, this is a prettyman, Princey!

I'm pretty sure someone else was always tweeting for him. They might have been his words but I'd be shocked if he was actually the one posting. A lot of famous people and politicians have others posting to their Twitter account for them. But this was just not cool at all and I'm so glad someone realized it and deleted it.

I suppose though it's possible the account was hacked and it wasn't the family that posted this. We don't know.

Given their clear intent to copy his style, I'm convinced it was a hack. Especially since it was deleted soon after.

The same thing happened with Christina Grimmie's Twitter after she was shot.

I woke up to find this in my notifications on my phone - it was a real shock when that was one of the first things I saw when I opened my eyes.

They really shouldn't do things like that.

I'm not sure about that. I know someone who was with him personally when he sent out the "COOLEST OF COOLS" tweet. I'm pretty sure he did them all himself. You can't fake that bizarre style and why would you?

I don't go around chatting shite about a woman who is grieving her brother, so I'd say I'm having a better time of it than you.

Was this the moon imposed pic that came on the feed? It tripped me out. I thought it was an old tweet from when he was still with us. It was confusing.

Not judging by your posts on the other thread. I think you probably need to take a few long walks to get out of your head a bit. And you're speculating again about tyka. What is known is that certain nelsons aren't talking to her.
