Stephen Gately on Twitter

Early this morning the world learnt we had lost Stephen Gately, who tragically died in Majorca while on holiday with his partner. Both Stephen Glenn and myself did blog posts on this.

On the paper review on BBC1, the presenter read out Stephen's last tweet.

I logged onto Twitter to see, and noted that he had 6,867 followers. At 6pm I tweeted that this had now gone up to 9,262, it is now 9pm and there are over 10,006 followers.

I appreciate people will wish to pay their respects but just following Stephen on Twitter doesn't achieve that. Stephen RIP.

So tragic for his husband and family.

To those saying it is impossible to die of natural causes at 33, that is nonsense. One of my friends dropped dead from a heart condition he didn't know he had, he was only 20 and seemed very fit and healthy. At this stage, nobody knows what happened, just seems like he died in his sleep.
