Auntie Dionne Warwick's Twitter Reign Is Probably The Best Thing To Happen To 2020

Who could have guessed that a 79-year-old music legend would run one of the most beloved accounts on Twitter.

Dionne Warwick’s plunge into the world of Twitter has had us all rolling for weeks. Amid a tumultuous year, the legendary singer's auntie-like appeal and frankness are being gladly embraced by the Twitterverse. 

The decorated pop music legend is turning 80 in a few days, but her age has done little to stop her from quickly learning how to use the site and becoming one of its most beloved users. 

For a while, some thought maybe it was a family member who was running the account in her name. But Warwick, one of the most-charted female vocalists of all time, made sure everyone knew that it was none other than the "That's What Friends Are For" singer behind the account.While her account dates back to October 2012, it's only as of late that her antics on the site have gotten folks talking. 

Here are some of the tweets that still have us chuckling.


One of her first comical tweets came after the election when the slow vote count had us all on the edge of our seats for days. 

People shared a hilarious video of Warwick during her time on President Donald Trump's former game show The Apprentice. 

She often gets a lot of tweets about her iconic hit songs.


Her responses to folks are even more hilarious.


One of her biggest tweets to date is about the Spotify playlists that people have created which include her music. She noted that artists can, actually, see what playlists you're adding their songs to. 



She then began posting hilarious photos of some of the playlist titles which feature her legendary hits. 





She even outed herself as a hot girl. 





She's had dozens of other hit tweets as well that had people in tears. 


She even joked that her newfound love of tweeting has gotten her into trouble. 





As Blavity previously reported, Warwick brought, even more laughs out when she jokingly questioned why Chance The Rapper and The Weeknd felt obliged to include "the" in their stage names.

Both artists appeared quite honored to even be mentioned by Warwick, and now news has broken that she and Chance The Rapper plan to record a song together. 

"My Mom and I had a moment to speak with Chance after she Tweeted him about the word 'The' in his name," her son Damon Elliott said in a press release obtained by NewsWire.

"They had such an amazing conversation that led to them discussing the Hunger Not Impossible initiative - they'll receive portions of proceeds from her upcoming 80th birthday/holiday celebration which will be streamed live on Saturday, Dec. 12 at 7 pm EST," Elliott wrote. "The result of our conversation with Chance is this new single we'll be recording soon and we're all looking forward to this collaboration."
