Today Ivy Bean passed away at the age of 105. This lovely lady was best known for being the oldest person on both Facebook and Twitter where she had a massive fan base. Her tweets usually were very charming and innocent – and her friendship with Peter Andre, about whom she tweeted often, could only be described as heartwarming.
Her latest tweets were posted by Pat, the manager of the home in which Ivy was residing and a few weeks ago reported of her illness and today, sadly, of her death last night.
Tributes are already flowing in all over her Facebook page and her Twitter account, and mourners can send their condolences to the following address too: Hillside Manor. 133 Barkerend Road. Bradford BD3 9AU, United Kingdom.
So, if a 105-year old lady can use the social web at such a high level, can’t we all?
Ivy Bean, May you rest in peace, the Twitterverse will be a little emptier without you.
