Meanwhile, Jennifer Aniston also revealed that before creating her official account, she used to have a dummy account she stalked people with. While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, when the host asked her about her fake Instagram account, the 50-year-old Aniston replied by saying, "It was a stalker account, yes."
"When I was thinking about doing this I sort of figured it was time to kind of understand the world and dip my toe into the sort of social media pool," Jennifer further stated via FoxNews.
In addition to this, Jennifer Aniston talked about the learning phase of using social media platforms
"When you get an alert, a text, like 'Oh I've got a text,' and you're like, 'Oh there's nothing here,' and then you realize that someone has just put like a little heart or exclamation point or a thumbs up or thumbs down on somebody's something and you're like, 'You really couldn't just write like a heart?'"
