@SJP joins Twitter

Ready for some competition, Katy?

Celebrities on Twitter is nothing new - so much so, that we find ourselves being almost surprised when we discover a familiar name has just taken the plunge for the first time.

If you were expecting a side of beautiful imagery with her musings, however, prepare to be disappointed: her profile picture is a close-up of her (admittedly, immaculately made-up) eye.

Time hit the ground running, @SJP.
