Robert Plant joins Twitter and Instagram

Robert Plant has joined the world of social media, opening Twitter and Instagram accounts as well as a Google+ account, while also relaunching his website.

Within 24 hours of opening his Twitter account, Plant promised a Q&A with fans, and garnered more than 25,000 followers. Plant's first tweet simply read "Are we rolling?", and was signed 'RP'. Meanwhile, his sole Instagram post features a shot taken onstage behind his band as they take a bow.

Plant's first 25,000 followers will receive an exclusive free download of his current band – Robert Plant Presents Sensational Space Shifters – performing Led Zeppelin's "What Is And What Should Never Be" live from their 2012/2013 world tour.

The relaunched website will feature videos, including an exclusive docu-series, filmed by Plant, chronicling his recent visit to Mali. It will be shown in 10 weekly instalments. Among the first questions answered by Plant in the Q&A came from a user called @spaceoddity2304. He asked "What was your favourite moment or memory from your career?", to which Plant replied: "The release of my first record in 1966."
