Ivy Bean is 104 years old pensioner who lives at Hillside Manor Residential Home in Bradford, West Yorks. She already has a profile on Facebook, and with little help from Geek Squad agent, Martin Dix, she signed up for Twitter (@IvyBean104). She is perhaps the oldest person on planet earth to publish her updates on the microblogging site.


At the time of writing this post, she had around 14,067 followers with 33 updates. It’s not very important if she is the oldest user on Twitter or not, but it’s really hard to find someone of her age willing to learn and try new online services. She is a source of inspiration to all those who say they are too old for the internet. Kudos to Ivy Bean!
