When did he change his twitter avatar/name?

Exactly what date did he change his twitter avatar to the Eternal Prince avatar and change his handle frome Princ3EG to Prince? Seems like it was in close proximity to his death.

IIRC it was early 2016.

Wow what garbage in that thread. eek Anyway I never took the name change to mean 3EG was over (though it might have been anyway) but just how long it took to get @Prince approved and verified by Twitter. I remember on the AH show he said he was trying to get Princstagram for his Instagram account. Who knows how long it takes for celebrities to get what they want and get the official status.

More likely he was trying to get @prince from whoever already owned it, not waiting on twitter to verify it.

I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

More importantly, when did he change his avi to a "Prince with a tear". I can't believe no one has mentioned how he changed his avi to him crying a few days before his plane scare and a few days before he passed. Prince knew.

There was more than one thread at the time, it was brought up constantly when he had just died and is currently being talked about in the Shelby J interview thread. So yeah, no one has mentioned it.

I think it meant that he was ready for his final phase and that was him announcing it. Prince knew he was sick. Addiction is a sickness. He knew his time was shirt and his purpose on this earth had been served.

There is a photo taken days before his death at his piano with the "many faces of Prince" behind him representing every year of his career. His shirt has the "Eternal Phase" Prince. In the photo, Prince looks to be on the doorstep of death. His entire career us behind him. The Eternal Phase avatar is gaunt, purplish skin, eyes closed with the third eye open. That photo could not be any more clear that he is saying goodbye. The same is true with the twitter name change.

We need to be paying closer attention to his messages to us. Prince was very deliberate with everything that he did.

The TRUTH is Princes Third eye has been open for years anyway...

1997 he started talking about it...

Thats 20 years ago...

Ahead of US...as usual

Using a special code he accessed his mind

In search of the reason why

In passion and fashion he began traveling time

3rd eye, third eye, third eye

Lovejunky, I have seen the 1st pic before, but it never really hit me that his shirt had a pic of the 3rd eye opened and his own eyes closed. That really gave me chills...because as you and donnyenglish stated, everything P did was deliberiate

When I look at photos of prince in the last few months, his lips looked bigger to me, and he made his lips bigger on the last avatar as well. What would cause someone's lips to get bigger?

Like a lot of others here, I think something happened in the last few months. Is it possible he had some type of cosmetic surgery, which then led to...

I think growing old physically is a lot more troubling for very beautiful people that have always been admired physically their entire lives. He looked great to most people for a man close to 60, but maybe not good enough for him.

The 3rd eye avatar was first used in artwork for the June 2015 3rdEyeGirl concert in Washington, DC...

https://twitter.com/RedFo...7673711616

On twitter, that pic was being used at least as far back as March 25, 2016. The tear appeared when Prince had to cancel the Atlanta concert, and disappeared when he rescheduled it. See these links for confirmation of dates...

If he lost weight maybe that would make his lips look bigger?

Does anyone know the date that the photo with the new piano was taken? The star tribune mistakenly says it was taken on April 14, but the photo was taken at Paisley and he was in Atlanta that day.

Here's a copy of the photo with the metadata still intact. The data contains both 4/14 and 4/13?

also, who do you think took this photo? who would he allow to capture an expression, a moment like this? it seems very direct, personal unguarded. even like he might have set it up and taken it himself?
