Hey, look: RGIII is on Twitter.

It’s the most exciting thing to happen in D.C. since the new but not-so-new Redskins uniforms were released.

His account has been verified by Twitter, beat reporters, Trey Wingo, and Baylor assistant athletic directors, so we’re confident it’s the real deal. Plus, he got 12,000 followers in the first hour, so there’s that.

Here are his first three tweets for posterity, including two in support of the Baylor women’s basketball team, who are playing for the national title tonight.
