Betty White Joins Twitter!

Technology for communicating with others, especially at long distances, was slim when Betty White was born in 1922. There was the telephone, still in its infancy. Morse code was an option for the few equipped accordingly. The post was generally reliable but slow, and smoke signals were the equivalent of instant messaging.

Fast-forward 90 years and smart phones, the Internet and social media have revolutionized how we keep in touch. Even White is getting in on the fun, joining Twitter and sending her first tweets yesterday.

So far, the beloved actress has over 148,000 followers after only tweeting a mere three times. In White’s typical flare for the outrageous, her most recent tweet was directed at TV host Ryan Seacrest and reads “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…”

We’re still waiting for the American Idol host’s response-..
