Facebook, Social Networking, Social Media, Twitter – Just something for young people? No – Think again!
Ivy Bean is 104 years old and must be the undisputed Ambassador of Twitter! She has nearly 50,000 followers.
Ivy from Bradford keeps her followers updated about the ebbs and flows of her life; from getting her hair done with her friends, to eating fish and chips and watching her favorite show “Deal or No Deal” on TV.
Before getting onto Twitter, Ivy was already active on Facebook; but she had used up her 5,000 friend limit!
I never want to hear that refrain from anyone ever again! – “I’m too old for all that social media stuff!”
Twitter is a free micro-blogging service whose users send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are like mobile phone text messages but use up to 140 characters only. Tweets are displayed on the author’s Twitter page and are delivered to the author’s subscribers who are known as followers.
