The rapper’s first post was a new poster for The Harder They Fall, which debuts on Netflix on Wednesday following a limited theatrical release.

He only said, ‘The Harder They Fall’ in the post’s caption, with Facebook and Instagram owner Mark Zuckerberg being the first to comment on his post with a had-waving emoji.

Jay-Z also utilized the Instagram story feature for the first time, sharing a brief video that reminded fans when The Harder They Fall would be available on Netflix, starting at midnight PST.

He does have a verified Twitter account, which he’s had since 2008, though he uses it quite sparingly, which he even joked about in his last tweet on Halloween.

‘In my excitement , I failed to prize, and acknowledge JAZ-O, he was the hometown hero that made the dream tangible . Thank you good man… ok let me lose this password for another year or so . Thank you all again , incredibly humbled by your love,’ he said.

Before that he last tweeted in March, when he changed his Twitter handle to @sc and his display name to Mr. Carter, before announcing he was selling the majority of his streaming service Tidal to Square, run by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey.

‘I said from the beginning that TIDAL was about more than just streaming music, and six years later, it has remained a platform that supports artists at every point in their careers. Artists deserve better tools to assist them in their creative journey,’ he began.

‘Jack is one of the greatest minds of our times, and our many discussions about TIDAL’s endless possibilities have made me even more inspired about its future. This shared vision makes me even more excited to join the Square board,’ he added.

‘This partnership will be a game-changer for many. I look forward to all this new chapter has to offer!’ he concluded.
