I’m #DopeOldPeople too. Damned proud of it. You can only hope to be as happy, fulfilled and cool as I am at my age. Baby, I still have it in my 60’s. No makeup in this pic! @BTS_twt pic.twitter.com/OaDV83FbeQ

All these pics, and the thousands more posted to Twitter, prove a point: BTS’ fanbase isn’t just one demographic. In fact, their supporters did their best to capture a sense of how much diversity exists within their ranks, performing the first-ever “Army Census.”
