There he is!

After a year of peer pressure from everyone (including us), Dancing With the Stars pro Tristan MacManus has finally started tweeting @TristanMacManus. Why now? As he tweeted, “It’s been pointed out to me how much I try to convince people to try something new by dancing - this is me trying something new!”

Good on ya!

Apparently we should thank DWTS 13’s Ricki Lake for making this happen. Twitter TV wrote on Monday, “Welcome @TristanMacManus to Twitter thanks to a very special Twitter-vention on the @RickiLakeShow! #friendsofricki.”

Tristan’s early tweets are adorable — he’s like a baby giraffe taking his first steps:

• “#friendsofricki teaching me how to tweet on The Ricki Lake Show- now what happens??!!!”

• “Big thanks for all the messages- if I don’t follow you dont think I don’t like you, just getting used to this! great day at rehs, Rio tomorrow.”

Congrats on stepping out of your comfort zone, Tristan! We’ll try not to bombard you with tweets and scare you away. (But no promises...)

Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars will premiere on Monday, September 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Check out the full All-Stars cast list here.
