You can find Ellen on the addictive social media site @EllenPompeo. The account is already verified, and Shonda Rhimes as well as several of Ellen's castmates have also tweeted that it really is her. This is not a drill, people. It's the real deal.

So how did Ellen begin her foray into the world of 140 character messages? With a somber tweet about the recent Boston Marathon bombing. Which makes sense, since she's from the Boston area.

Ellen, whose husband is also from the area, wrote, "Heavy hearts in the Ivery family today. Our thoughts and prayers are with our fellow Bostonians," adding, "Praise and gratitude goes out to all the incredible doctors, nurses, and first responders. You are Boston’s finest."

Those tweets were yesterday. Now that the word about her account is out, she's lightened things up with the adorable photo of herself with Jesse Williams (Jackson Avery) to the right, saying "Ladies, just so u know, I'm working on getting @iJesseWilliams's shirt off, for a pic for you all. #ThankMeLater"

Also of note: Her Twitter bio reads "Professional assistant to Stella Luna Ivery" (that's her daughter). Aww!

An adorable bio and promises of Jesse Williams shirtless? Ellen's already in the running for best Grey's star on Twitter!

Catch the next new episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, April 25, 2013, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
