Is Leonard Nimoy the first example of a “famous last tweet?” If not, what are some others?

  1. Roger Ebert’s final tweet was a link to his last blog post, which was pretty profound.

    “So on this day of reflection I say again, thank you for going on this journey with me. I’ll see you at the movies.”

  2. This one has to take the cake. An aspiring rapper tweets:

    “Drunk af going 120 drifting corners #FuckIt YOLO”

    and dies in a car accident minutes later. Here’s a TIME article about it.

  3. Halloween 2012 Mitch Lucker tweeted a picture of him dressed as a skeleton with the caption “The dead are living” and two hours later got into a fatal motorcycle crash.

  4. Not a tweet, but the person who posted “if we disappear, this is what the plane looks like” on facebook before boarding Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 (which was shot down over Ukraine) is up there.

  5. Monty Oum’s last tweet was about how his animation software improved. Somewhat fitting I guess.

  6. Nope:

  7. Cory Monteith’s last tweet was regarding Sharknado: “oh. IT’S A SHARK TORNADO.” It can be regarded as a good last tweet because it shows how unexpected his death was. There is no subtext or pretense. It’s not profound. He was just a guy who was watching a silly movie, and then he was dead.
    Edit: He was an actor, most famous for his role on Glee.

  8. Not his last tweet, but former Weezer bassist Mikey Welsh [predicted] ( his own death about a week or two before he overdosed and died.

    He died two weeks after this tweet, and later added a correction stating it would be the weekend after next, not that current weekend. Died in Chicago as well. Suicide was not suspected either.

  9. This play is terrible. I can’t imagine an actor ever doing anything worse than what these actors are doing right now. And I can’t just get up and leave because I’m the President and people would notice. Someone just put me out of my misery! #thisplaysucks

  10. I don’t know of any good ones, but my last tweet was this so I think I’m gonna stop there, just in case.

  12. There’s this guy who tweeted about driving 120 mph and drinking, and then died drunk driving minutes later.
