Imagine if your most recent tweet were your very last. That is what happened to the following actors, singers, athletes and other notable people, most of whom had no idea that the tweet they made would really be their very last ever. Leonard Nimoy’s tweet is more poignant than most: “Life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.” Joan Rivers was joking until the end: “A man reportedly got his finger bitten off at a Beyoncé concert! The shocking twist: It wasn’t Jay Z’s finger and it wasn’t by Solange.” Whitney Houston’s final tweet was to a doubter, saying, “Yes, I am the real Whitney.” Troubled singer Amy Winehouse’s last tweet was bizarre: “oinka oinka oinka why you awake.” We also found the final tweets by Tom Petty, George Michael, Chris Cornell, Robin Williams, Scott Weiland, Garry Shandling, Patty Duke, Roger Ebert and many more. These final celebrity tweets are alternately poignant, eerie and completely random. Read on to find out the final words from your favorite dearly departed star.
