Betty White joins Twitter, pranks co-star

You’re never too old to tweet.

“Hello Twitter!” Betty White posted on Tuesday. “And they said it would never happen. Oh wait, that was me.”

White used the social networking site to promote her new NBC show, “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers,” but the Golden Girl doesn't need the “Punk’d”-like hidden camera series to prove she’s a certified prankster.

Her “Hot in Cleveland” co-star Valerie Bertinelli can attest. She was one of the 90-year-old’s first victims:

“Just spoke with Betty and she is VERY upset! @BettyMWhite is NOT her. Don't know how they got verified, but it is not Betty. Please RT!” the actress tweeted on Wednesday afternoon.

Shortly after, Bertinelli clarified that the account is, in fact, legitimate, and that she had been pranked.

“It's all a misunderstanding...@BettyMWhite IS Betty's twitter account! Now follow me back, b--!”

“Betty White’s Off Their Rockers” airs tonight at 8 p.m., alongside Fox’s ratings juggernaut “American Idol.”

“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...” White tweeted on Tuesday.

    Go, Betty, Go!! Have loved her since I've first seen her on Password years ago with Alan. So full of wit and charm, she's hard to top. Best of luck to her in her new show.

    Betty White, Lucille Ball & Carol Burnette for me are the BEST lady comedians of all time!

    Betty White is a beautiful, young 90 year old awesome woman. One fact is for sure: in a one on one comedy pranking, comedy anything, or even an intelligent conversation she'd knock socks off of most of the teenagers commenting here. But that would require you teenagers unglue yourselves from your keyboards, and bring your two remaining twitching brain cells out of your Grandma's basement. Betty: you go, girl! You're fantastic!

    Betty is a doll. She is so funny. I hope I have at least half her energy and wit when I am her age.

    As of this afternoon, Betty White clamed that was not her Twitter account–that it was an imposter.
