The 115-year-old has been declared the oldest living person – and she’s active on Twitter!

That’s a lot of birthday candles to tweet.

María Branyas Morera from Spain, who has been verified as the oldest living person at 115 years and 321 days, is an active Twitter user according to Guinness World Records.

The sprightly senior Twitter bio reads“I’m old, very old, but not an idiot,” and she often shares her wisdom on the social media platform with the help of her daughter.

The octogenarian this week took on the impressive title of the world’s oldest living person after French nun Lucile Randon, also known as Sister Andre, died on Tuesday aged 118.

Morera is from San Francisco and was born in 1907, a year after her parents emigrated to the United States. Eight years later, however, they returned to Spain and settled in the north-eastern region of Catalonia, where Morera still lives.

She has lived in the Residència Santa María del Tura nursing home for 22 years.

“She is in good health and remains surprised and grateful for the attention this anniversary has garnered,” the home said in a statement.

“To celebrate this very special event, we will be holding a small celebration behind closed doors at the residence in the coming days.”

In 2020, she made headlines as the world's oldest COVID-19 survivor.In 2020, Branyas Morera made headlines for being the world’s oldest COVID-19 survivor.YouTube

Morera, whose late husband Joan Moret was a doctor, has three children, 11 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

In 2020, she made headlines as the world’s oldest COVID-19 survivor, but was later dethroned by Randon.

on this new year’s day, Morera took to Twitter to say: “Life is not eternal for anyone … At my age, a new year is a gift, a humble celebration, a new adventure, a beautiful journey, a moment of happiness. Let’s enjoy life together.”
