Just three days ago Dame Elizabeth Taylor announced that she would be having a heart operation via her Twitter page.
So it was only fitting the Hollywood icon chose to tweet when it came to letting her followers know how she got on.
"Dear Friends," the 77-year-old actress began. "My heart procedure went off perfectly."
"It's like having a brand new ticker. Thank you for your prayers and good wishes. I know they all helped. Love you, Elizabeth."
On Tuesday, the England-born Cleopatra star told some 165,000 fans on Twitter that she was being admitted "to repair my leaky valve using a clip device, without open heart surgery".
