Betty White has a new Twitter account, everybody! Someone should really tell her, though. After the 90-year-old White appeared to open a verified account the other day to promote her new NBC series and sent flirty messages to Ryan Seacrest, White's Hot in Cleveland co-star Valerie Bertinelli sounded the alarm. "Just spoke with Betty and she is VERY upset!" Bertinelli tweeted. "@BettyMWhite is NOT her. Don't know how they got verified, but it is not Betty," adding later, "Betty just got a call. An account was opened on her behalf by her people." That breach of celebrity-tweeting trust would not stand, and Bertinelli then attempted to walk back her allegation: "It's all a misunderstanding," wrote Bertinelli. "@BettyMWhite IS Betty's twitter account! I think pranked me but good! " Betty White has always been tweeting, just as Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.
