You need to see Halle Berry’s beautiful first Instagram pic

In the past day, 175,000 people dropped what they were doing immediately to embark on a very important social media task: Following Halle Berry on Instagram. The Oscar-winning actress may have taken a minute to join the photo-sharing platform, but she just made it very clear that she’s going to be using it in an inspiring way.

Halle posted a very body-positive picture of herself, topless with her hair falling down her back, as she stares out into the forest. “Today is a very exciting day for me,” she wrote in the caption of her first-ever Insta. “I’m looking forward to sharing our world through images that reflect my emotions and perceptions.”

Halle expressed her adoration for the art form on which Instagram is based: Photography. “I am in awe of photography and its ability to capture and reflect this extraordinary world that we live in,” she wrote. “I’m excited to share with you my love of nature, the arts, fashion and much more in the hopes that the images will inspire, promote conversation and bring you joy.”

Oh, and Halle’s not *just* on Instagram. She also joined Twitter and shared her very first tweet, featuring her incredible first pic.

The Twitterverse is *excited,* to say the least.

So how do we feel about the fact that Halle Berry is blowing up our social media feeds now? Well, perhaps The Academy said it best. . .
