Elaine Stritch, 1925 – 2014

“Elaine Stritch, the brassy, tart-tongued Broadway actress and singer who became a living emblem of show business durability and perhaps the leading interpreter of Stephen Sondheim’s wryly acrid musings on aging, died on Thursday at her home in Birmingham, Mich. She was 89.” – Times obit

At 89, Elaine Stritch started Tweeting. She wrote 17 Tweets, had 18.9k followers. To the very end, Miss Stritch followed nobody.
