Twitter's newest member: Former Golden Girl Betty White
One of the Golden Girls made it to Twitter. Rose, whoops, Betty White debuted her official page today with her first tweet reading, "Hello Twitter! And they said it would never happen. Oh wait, that was me."
Many older adults use Twitter and other social-networking sites, despite social media being a relatively new phenomenon.
According to a study by the Pew Research Center in October, 33 percent of adults older than 65 use social-networking sites and 15 percent use them daily.
