People all over the world like to keep up with their favorite celebs. There are many platforms to be able to do this like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. One of the favorites is Twitter because it’s easy to do and the limit of characters that can be used in a tweet make the posts short and sweet. They are more to the point because there is no room for rambling. A lot of celebs have Twitter followers that are numbered into the millions. People from all across the globe wait for that next tweet so they can either respond to it or share it (retweet) or both. One single tweet can set the rumor world on fire in a matter of minutes. When a celebrity dies, or anyone else for that matter, it’s always interesting to find out what they did that day or what they did last. Twitter allows us a unique look into someone’s final day of life. When you read these final tweets of famous people you will learn who talked about the dead just hours before dying, who tried to help a friend with record sales before her own death and who actually said goodbye. Some final tweets are sad and some of them are downright fitting for the person that tweeted them.
