English singer Morrissey, best known as the vocalist for the 1980s group The Smiths, has entered the social media world.

Morrissey, who is performing Wednesday evening at the Sunshine Theatre in Albuquerque, sent his first tweet Wednesday afternoon.

The tweet reads, "Hello. Testing, 1, 2, 3. Planet Earth, are you there? One can only hope..." A subsequent tweet sent at 3:17 p.m. from Albuquerque says, "Follow, follow, follow. Twitter is the perfect metaphor for...something. Dunno what."

Morrissey's Twitter account was established in June of 2009 but nothing had been tweeted from the account previously.

A spokesperson for the Sunshine Theater tells KOB Eyewitness News 4 that tickets are still available for Morrissey's show. More information is available at
