WILLIAMSTOWN, Ky., April 30 (UPI) -- A great-grandmother from Kentucky is proving that social media stardom isn’t just reserved for the young.

Baddie Winkle has more than 200,000 followers on Twitter and over 50,000 followers on Instagram, including Rihanna.

The 86-year-old set up her social media accounts in early April and she hasn’t looked back.




According Winkle’s bio, she’s been "stealing your man since 1928,” possibly with moves like these.



A campaign to get Winkle on Ellen Degeneres' show, featuring the hashtag #baddiewinkleonellen, has also started.


She doesn’t seem to be in any rush.
