Roger Ebert From A Twitter Perspective


Roger Ebert, the famed movie critic who passed away Thursday, was known as much for his Twitter presence as he was for his TV show of the past, At The Movies. Let’s check out a selection of Twitter tweets, from, and about Roger Ebert.

This tweet, on April 2nd, would be Mr. Ebert’s last one:

This was the tweet from the Chicago Sun Times that announced his death:

And selected reactions from a man who embodies the spirit of Chicago:

And this is part of the key message from what would be his last column in the Chicago Sun Times:

Typically, I write over 200 reviews a year for the Sun-Times that are carried by Universal Press Syndicate in some 200 newspapers. Last year, I wrote the most of my career, including 306 movie reviews, a blog post or two a week, and assorted other articles. I must slow down now, which is why I’m taking what I like to call “a leave of presence.”

But, from reading it, Mr. Ebert made it clear he had a lot of plans, big plans. From an upgrading of his digital presence to his continued work at Ebertfast, his film festival, and how he planned to select other critics to keep his work going, Roger Ebert was planning for the future.

Then, on April 4th, he passed away.

No word on the date of the funeral service. Stay tuned on that one.

We have to kill this thing called cancer. We just have to.
