Roger Ebert : June 18, 1942 - April 4, 2013

Roger Ebert

Roger Ebert passed away yesterday.

He had such a prominent presence online, on Twitter (my social medium of choice), Facebook and his blog. Here are some of the tweets that came across my feed yesterday afternoon. It's fascinating to see how widespread is the love for Roger Ebert.

Ebert's last tweet, linking to his last blog post for the Chicago Sun Times, posted 2 days before he passed away and 46 years after being named the film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times:

"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."
