Ivy Bean, 'world's oldest Twitter user,' dead at 104

One of the oldest Nanny to tweet about her every day life is just 104 years old :P. Ivy Bean is from northern English city of Bradford, having nearly 57,000 Twitter followers around the world.

Bren loves to tweet with her warm tweet consisted of happiness and sadness.

Two weeks ago, Bean entered the hospital with jaundice, and care home manager Pat Wright took over the tweeting on Bean's account. Wright revealed that Andre called his biggest fan daily and even sent her flowers the first day she got sick.

In the past few days, Bean returned to Hillside Manor care home, but she never fully recovered from her illness. Wright informed Bean's Twitter followers Wednesday that she died "peacefully" at 12:08 a.m.

"I'm sorry it took me so long to tell you, but it was a very difficult thing to do," she wrote.

Wright didn't reveal the cause of death.

Bean told CNN in an interview last year that she knew people must think it's amazing that she was so active online, but she considered it a good way of keeping in touch with people.

For those who find it hard to jump on the Twitter bandwagon, Bean simply offered this advice: "Keep on at it."

"Old" was not the first -- or second or even 10th -- word that came to mind with Bean, an engaging, lively and friendly lady with a warm and infectious smile.

She won a gold medal last year at the home's Over-75 Olympics in the frisbee-throwing category. And she enjoyed bowling on the home's Nintendo Wii.

No surprise, perhaps, for a lady who was a gymnast when she was younger.
