About

The Tweet Hereafter is a collection of last tweets by notable, newsworthy, famous, or infamous people.

It was inspired by the revelation that, in the age of social media, those of us who post will ultimately leave behind a final message, intentional or not.

Those messages will exist long after we're gone, and what they say about us may or may not have much to do with the lives we led.

And, unlike in times past, we won't enjoy the luxury of having our last words rewritten to make them memorable or to deepen their meaning. For example, Geothe's famous deathbed pronouncement, "More light!" had nothing to do with a metphorical plea for more life. His actual utterance, unedited, was, "Open the second shutter so that more light may come in." He was perpetually complaining about his room being too dark.

What will your last words be?

The Tweet Hereafter is an experimental project by Jamie Forrest and Michael McWatters, who intend no ill will to any person, alive or not.
