Out with the old, in with the new.
Not wanting to be anything like Miley Cyrus or Courtney Love, Rihanna and/or her peeps have set up a Twitter account for the distinctive singer, making her a little late to the party, but a welcome guest all the same.
Her inaugural tweet: "The Wait Is Ova. Nov 23 09."
Sounds like an album release date... (And it is, according to the identical message on her website.) The upcoming effort will be her fourth studio album and first since 2007.
So, the ever-expanding and contracting Twitterverse has pulled another celeb into its orbit. We advise you to be on the lookout for any back-and-forth between the handles "rihanna" and "MechanicalDummy," aka Chris Brown, who yesterday twittered his concern after "So Cold," a tune off his upcoming album, ended up online.
"im a lil upset but i pray my album doesnt leak..," he wrote. We're sure "rihanna" feels the same way.

Hey Rihanna, feel free to start posting Twitter pics, like these celebs did from the Emmys red carpet!
