Better late than never!

Former Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr joined Twitter on Tuesday. Though her account is not yet verified, the 26-year-old actress posted a photo of herself with the caption: "See! It's really me!"

It didn't take long for Szohr's celebrity pals to welcome her to the social networking site. "Welcome to Twitter an ol' friend and one of the coolest chicks I know," Brittany Snow, 25, told her followers.

Added JoAnna Garcia, 32: "Whoop whoop! Welcome Jess!"

What's Szohr up to now that her stint on Gossip Girl is over?

"I'm trying a lot of new things! I just started guitar lessons for a movie called Light Years that I'm going to do," she told Us Weekly in May. "I play a kind of singer-songwriter, which is funny, because I don't sing! And I have another movie called I Don't Know How She Does It with Sarah Jessica Parker."

"I just want to do the same thing I did being a part of Gossip Girl: working with great actors, working in amazing cities and working with good material to learn and keep growing," she added.
