103 Year Old Twitter

 

Updated : May 16, 2009


VeryHappyPig can be followed on Twitter, Facebook and Bebo, but as a pig, finds it a struggle to keep up with all things internet.

Just as we were about to bemoan VHP’s lack of computer skills, however, we came across our latest story and thought if a 103 year old lady can Twitter, then VHP with a bit of effort could become rocket scientist.

A 103-year-old woman has become Britain’s oldest user of Twitter - after she got bored of Facebook.

Ivy Bean, who lives in a care home in Bradford, has 4,800 friends on Facebook, reports The Sun.

But she now prefers Twitter and recently posted: "I'm enjoying Twitter and having my photo taken - and I'm looking forward to Deal Or No Deal."

Ivy's enthusiasm is spreading among her friends at Hillside Manor care home in Bradford.

Manager Pat Wright said: "All the residents are taking a leaf out of her book. Four signed up for computer college.

"Others have joined Facebook or surf the net and enjoy themselves with ten-pin bowling on the games console."

Ex-mill worker Ivy got a helping hand to smooth her switch to Twitter by calling in IT experts The Geek Squad.

Boss Martin Dix said: "It's brilliant to help someone as inspirational as Ivy to get started and teach her about Twitter. She shows others that you shouldn't be frightened of technology."

VeryHappyPig says if you know any Twitter pensioners here in Ireland let us know!
