World's Oldest Tweeter Will Be Missed by Thousands

Ivy Bean was 104 when she died Wednesday, July 28. She was known as “the World’s Oldest Tweeter.”

According to the Irish Times, Ivy Bean wrote about her life in Hillside nursing home in Bradford. She started out on Facebook, but had to switch to Twitter when she exceeded her quota of 5000 fans. In two years, Ivy amassed more than 62,000 followers. Her handle was “IvyBean104.”

She tweeted about her meals, her fellow residents and the daily happenings at the home. “It’s been really busy in Hillside this week, the lounges have been decorated and we have got new curtains, it looks lovely,” was a recent tweet. Her last tweet was, “Going to have my lunch now will be back later.” [from Irish Times]

There is now officially no reason for anyone to claim that they are “too old” to learn how to use new technology.  My new inspirational phrase is now: “Ivy did it!”
