Katie Holmes
seems to be taking her single lady status in stride, this week taking her newfound independence to the web with a brand new Twitter account.

According to “People,” the “Dawson’s Creek” alum signed on to the social media site for the first time on Friday, posting an on-set photo of herself with her arm around singer Taylor Swift.

The unlikely pair are currently in South Africa filming an adaptation of the prize-winning Lois Lowry novel “
The Giver,” alongside Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges and Australian newcomer Brenton Thwaites.

Holmes later tweeted, “So happy to be on twitter!!!!!! Sending first tweets from South Africa!!!!!”

“The Giver,” which is set in a near-future dystopia, began shooting in Cape Town earlier this month for an August 15, 2014 release.
