Bean says she prefers Twitter anyway because it’s easier than Facebook . Like many of us, she has linked both accounts so that her tweets automatically show up on Facebook.
Ivy is a former mill-worker. She does not smoke or drink and said the secret to staying healthy and happy at 104 was an “ordinary life”.
Ivy created her Facebook profile after hearing about a 97-year-old French woman who was believed to be the oldest member. A campaign has begun to let her add more friends after she reached the maximum number allowed after only a month on the site.
Her fan page has 16,000 members.
