On his birthday, Vin Scully promises fans the gift of his Twitter presence

Vin Scully turned 85 on Thursday as he prepares for his 64th season announcing Dodger baseball. As part of his birthday festivities, the team announced that the immortal broadcaster will take over their official Twitter account on Monday to answer questions from fans. You can submit questions by tweeting to @Dodgers with the hashtag #AskVin.

Since the living legend's first on-air mention of the social media powerhouse, his Twitter savvy has improved markedly. It'll be exciting to see what happens when he takes the reins of his team's handle -- and we can only hope he'll enjoy it enough to create his own!
