140-Character Tributes to Steve Jobs

Without a doubt, Steve Jobs was one of the most inspirational people that I was able to watch from afar. I have always dreamed of doing something big in this world, and Steve Jobs did something that changed everything. He changed the way that we communicate and connect with each other. Obviously, I realize that Apple is the work of hundreds of thousands of people, but Steve Jobs undoubtedly was the glue that kept the organization together and the passionate force that made the rest of the world fall in love with it. Being on Twitter tonight is definitely not easy if you were a fan of Steve or just Apple in general.

I thought it would be an appropriate tribute to the Steve Jobs legacy to gather the thoughts (in 140 characters or less) of the fans who loved him. Below are some of the tweets that moved me:

@WritingSpirit: “Wow. Steve Jobs’ death hit me hard. Sweet dreams, Steve. Thank you for the passion, creativity & technology that so enriched our lives.”

@KevinSmith_: “Steve Jobs: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”

@UWOrat: “RIP Steve Jobs. Your drive & passion was an inspiration to us all. You were an absolute visionary prodigy that changed the world forever.”

@mtvnews: “Obama: “There may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that … the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.”

@CNBC: “Warren Buffett on passing of Steve Jobs: “He was one of the most remarkable business managers and innovators in american business history.”
