Most 90-year-olds probably don’t know how to turn on a computer or use a cell phone but Betty White is and like most 90-year-olds and she proves that yesterday when she joined the social networking site Twitter.
Betty White joined twitter one can assume in order to promote her new show on NBC a seniors prank the young people show kind of like Punk’d called Betty White’s Off Their Rockers. In less than 24 hours after her very first tweet she already has over 135,000 twitter followers.
Her first tweet? "Hello Twitter! And they said it would never happen. Oh wait, that was me."
It seems as though we can expect White to bring her signature wit to the social network. "Hey @RyanSeacrest – my new show airs tomorrow and I hear we’re in the same time slot. I’ve always dreamed of sharing a night with you…" she tweeted on Tuesday evening.
Ryan Seacrest has yet to respond but he’s been busy as of late responding to rumors of him hosting the today show.
Hopefully Betty is actually the one in charge of her own twitter account and is able to bring her brand of humor out on every tweet as opposed to this just been a marketing ploy for NBC.
Betty White’s Off Their Rockers airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
