Finally! Everybody's favorite, well, person in general, has joined Twitter: Betty White!
"Hello Twitter! And they said it would never happen. Oh wait, that was me," Betty's first Tweet read.
This is just the latest development in Betty's seven-decade career, which includes famous turns as Sue Ann Nivens on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls. The 90-year-old living legend currently has two shows on the air, TVLand's Hot in Cleveland and NBC's Betty White's Off Their Rockers. The latter show airs tonight at 8 p.m., the same time as American Idol, and Betty let Ryan Seacrest know that she's aware of the competition.
OMG! We love that Betty White has a Twitter! And so do a lot of other people, apparently. Betty's garnered over 141,000 followers since joining the social networking site yesterday, and we expect that number will continue to rise!
As for who Betty is following? Jimmy Kimmel, Britney Spears, Adele, Ellen DeGeneres, Blake Shelton and Justin Bieber, just to name a few.
For those who want to follow Betty (um, everyone?), her Twitter handle is @BettyMWhite.
