Shirley Temple Black, America's OG child star, signed up for a Twitter account as of Wednesday. Black is already up to over 7,000 followers, and has exchanged pleasantries with a number of friends and fans.

Among those who contacted her was supermodel Coco Rocha, who asked, of course, what Black thinks about America's newest child star, Honey Boo Boo:

We're not sure about the use of #Yolo in tweeting legends about current reality stars, but maybe it was just a very impromptu decision on Rocha's part. Either way, Black replied appropriately, by saying that she has no idea who Honey Boo Boo is.

She clearly hasn't seen the coverage of Ms. Boo Boo sticking her head in a cupcake machine or tooling around Los Angeles. No doubt Black will see it all soon enough.
