Twitter just got a whole lot sassier, people! Kandi Burruss's opinionated mother, famously known as Mama Joyce to fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, just opened herself a Twitter account and she's ready to rumble. Kandi is a little concerned that her mother won't be able to handle Twitter's hostile environment, but Mama Joyce is determined to join the social network.

Kandi took to her Twitter page to announce the news.

"Well my mom has decided to join twitter.... Please be nice to her! Follow @themamajoyce Rt!" Kandi wrote.

We hope people will do as Kandi asks and be kind to Mama Joyce, but we all know how harsh the world of Twitter can be, especially with celebrities. When one of Kandi's followers pointed out that peeps on Twitter can be really mean, Kandi responded that she tried to warn her mom, but Joyce decided to join anyway.

In fact, it looks like Mama Joyce is prepared to face the worst. Her very first Tweet was a message addressing haters before any haters had a chance to hate! We gotta love the way she's staying ahead of the game.

Mama Joyce popped her Twitter cherry, writing, "The mean things people say shouldn't make you mad because you can't miss a friend you never had."

And, by the way, it took Mama Joyce less than four hours to accumulate over 1,000 followers! We're definitely impressed.
