I recently read about Natalie Yellin in the Wall Street Journal and knew her story would inspire and entertain you.

Ms. Yellin is 75 years of age and has posted over 13,600 Tweets under the Twitter handle grannyny.  Many of her followers include Twitter and Square employees, including her grandson Brian Grassadonia (co-creator of Square Cash) and Jack Dorsey (co-founder of Twitter and Square).  According to the WSJ article, “Ms. Yellin was asked to test Square Cash, the new system through which users can transfer money via email. Under total secrecy, she tried the product a number of times and reported back to the company’s development team.”

Ms. Yellin is such a great role model to keep learning, embrace technology and have fun!  To read the full article click this link: This Granny Advises Square Inc. by Katherine Rosman.
