It didn't take long after hearing about the devestating loss of Prince for the world to take to Twitter to express their feels. From Madonna to Missy Elliott, Prince's legacy as someone who was unafraid to be himself touched more lives than can be seen on Twitter. However, today's tweets were beautiful, cry-worthy and legendary.
This is so heartbreaking💔 I had this Prince pic drawn on my wall years ago because his music inspired so many R.I.P😥 pic.twitter.com/60msa6hm3I

It got back to me that Prince had seen the dumb tweets from this account and thought they were funny. I will miss him terribly.

I don't wanna hear anybody compare themselves to Prince. And I don't wanna hear him being compared to anyone else. He was Prince. 1 of none.

Good night, sweet Prince. He really was, too. Sweet, kind, unbelievably talented, a joy to watch and to hear. I can't believe it.

Only now do we know what it sounds like When Doves Cry — the absence of music from loss of The Artist. RIP Prince (1958-2016)
