Betty White Joins Twitter, Shows Whippersnappers How It’s Done

Betty White, America’s favorite Golden Girl, enters the Twitterverse; could a racy photo scandal be far behind?

Betty White has just raised the average age of the Twitter community considerably.

The "Golden Girls" icon, who turned 90 years young in January, launched her official Twitter account Tuesday, offering an adoring public a glimpse into the still-spry actress' fertile mind, 140 characters at a time.

The actress's maiden tweet was a typical bit of witticism (or is that White-icism?) designed to enchant and delight the masses.

"Hello Twitter! And they said it would never happen. Oh wait, that was me," White cracked.

White's second tweet, about 45 minutes later, was more mercenary than whimsical, consisting of a plug for her geriatric hidden-camera show, "Betty White's Off Their Rockers."

"My new show 'Betty White's Off Their Rockers' airs 8 PM tomorrow on NBC… I'm new at this… ;)," White wrote.

New, and yet already so, so savvy at it, apparently…

Welcome to the Twitterverse, Ms. White. Just take a lesson from Anthony Weiner and remember that tweeting racy photos is probably not a wise idea.
