Ivy Bean got bored with Facebook, she says, so made the switch to Twitter. At 104 years old, Bean is the U.K's oldest tweeter, the Sun reports.

Bean currently has 4,957 followers, just a smidge over thr 4,800 friends she had on Facebook.

The manager of her retirement home says her enthusiasm is contagious.

"All the residents are taking a leaf out of her book," said Pat Wright. "Four signed up for computer college. Others have joined Facebook or surf the net and enjoy themselves with ten-pin bowling on the games console."
