Broadway legend Patti LuPone has more than just a little touch of star quality.
The diva—currently starring in the West End production of Company—is famously outspoken, whether she’s dishing about Madonna or railing against Donald Trump. Now, fans of the two-time Tony winner will have a whole new medium to hear the Broadway legend’s unfiltered opinions.
That’s right, y’all: Patti LuPone is tweeting. This is not a drill. The queen who:
Stopped Gypsy mid-finale to yell at a photographer in the audience:

…is now on Twitter.
LuPone, who’s slated to appear in season two of Ryan Murphy’s POSE, joined Twitter all the way back in February, but it wasn’t until Tuesday that she finally sent her first post.
And it’s the most Patti LuPone tweet ever:
Contain me with only 280 characters? Fuck that.

Fans immediately responded with GIFs that captured their excitement.

Even if this were also her last tweet ever, we'd still be eternally grateful
