Betty White, the veteran comedic actress, has joined Twitter in order to promote her new show 'Betty White: Off Her Rocker', and to seduce a famous user of the micro-blogging website. White posted her first tweet on Tuesday (April 10, 2012) and racked up over 100,000 followers in no time.
Her third tweet was aimed at American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, saying, "Hey RyanSeacrest - my new show airs tomorrow and I hear we're in the same time slot. I've always dreamed of sharing a night with you". Betty is currently following around 40 other accounts, most notably President Barack Obama, singers Rihanna and Lady GaGa, and actress Whoopi Goldberg. Her new show 'Off Her Rocker' sees White send an army of senior citizens onto the streets of the U.S. to pull pranks on the younger generation, with hilarious consequences. In the same vein as Ashton Kutcher's Punk'd, the show will see Betty and company putting together cleverly-crafted comedy stunts and capturing the ensuing carnage on hidden cameras. The show airs on Wednesday (April 11, 2012) on the NBC Network.
