It's really not surprising that #RIPEbert is trending on Twitter right now. Arguably the world's most influential critic was also an avid tweeter, with over 30,000 tweets to his credit, including a final tweet on Tuesday, with a link to a final blog post. Right up to the very end, the man never stopped writing.

And so it's somewhat appropriate that his passing should influence so much writing on his behalf. From the paper he worked at for 46 years to Hollywood insiders who fondly recall getting their first thumbs up from the man, there's been a deluge of Tweets bidding sentimental farewells to Ebert.
