Author Terry Pratchett Has Died and Left Us With Some Moving Final Tweets

"Color of Magic" Author Terry Pratchett has died. His Twitter account first hinted at the news with a tweet in all caps, which is how the author had come to characterise "Death," one of his most memorable characters in his books. Sadly a second tweet confirmed the news from his home in London. The first one read: "AT LAST, SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER." Then came this: "Terry took Death’s arm and followed him through the doors and on to the black desert under the endless night." Yet another linked to a formal statement about his death that announced: "It is with immeasurable sadness that we announce that author Sir Terry Pratchett has died at the age of 66." The last tweet from his account said simply, "The End."
