T.R. Knight (George O’Malley) might be gone from Grey’s Anatomy for good, but now, we get to relate to him on a whole new level. Yep, you guessed it: social media. Our favorite perpetual intern is now on Twitter and Instagram, and our fingers are crossed that soon he’ll feel like chatting with some of his fans.


And the good news was announced to the world by none other than one of T.R.’s best friends — onscreen and off — and another former Grey’s doc herself, Katherine Heigl (Izzie Stevens).

“Finally my old buddy @t.r.knight joins the world of social media,” Katherine wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of T.R. grinning. “I don’t mean 'old' as in old… I mean 'old' as in we’ve been buddies a long time… Ah, s—t, you know what I mean!”

We’ll try to hold our excitement over the fact that George and Izzie are still BFFs after all these years and instead, we’ll focus on T.R.’s new online homes. In the world of Twitter, his tweets have only been shares from Instagram so far, but if you hop on over to check out his profile, you will be treated by quite a blast from the past as his header photo.

And where Instagram is concerned? Filtered photos of the best kinds of Insta-goodness, including an adorable pic of his dogs and a hand heart. We knew we loved this guy.

Now if only he could be persuaded to make a return to Grey’s in a dream sequence or a flashback. Best episode ever? We think so!

Send any tweets to T.R. yet? What kinds of photos do you hope he’ll share?
