Aaron Swartz was facing _35_ years jail time for redistributing educational material. That is fucked up. #copyright
Deeply saddened to hear about the loss of @aaronsw. Thanks for your struggle, Aaron. We'll all miss you.

Aaron Swartz is hilarious, humble, and good. He made a more interesting world. The news of his suicide is unbearable.
Absolutely horrible news: Aaron Swartz has committed suicide. An unbelievable loss for our community. http://t.co/S8laTlpF
Thinking about Aaron Swartz, and, at a greater distance, Gene Kan.
I looked "up" to Aaron when I was in high school and college even though he's 3 years younger than me. He accomplished so much, so young.
Aaron was the co-author of RSS when he was only 14. He was a technical prodigy. This is so incredibly sad.
Aaron was young and talented. Wikipedia has a quick summary and links on what he was going through: http://t.co/3uE0oIQ3
“But Aaron was also a person who'd had problems with depression for many years” http://t.co/1puD4YYV
Fuck, not Aaron. Shit.

Aaron Swartz was one of my favorite people, and I'm crying. http://t.co/kWzPuMsU
I knew Aaron. Utterly shocked at the news. Sickened. And unable to understand how someone so young, no matter how depressed, could suicide.
I met Aaron's mother when he went to an XML conf, but was too young to travel alone. She said he was a handful. I didn't disagree. :-0
If you use Reddit, RSS, or Markdown, say a little thank you to Aaron for his work.
Waking up to terrible news about Aaron Swartz. This is awful.
If we can have a copyright act named after Sonny Bono, we can have a copyright reform act named for Aaron Swartz. In a better world, maybe.

Shocked and saddened to hear about the suicide of Aaron Swartz, whom I first met when he was 14. @doctorow's eulogy http://t.co/5tfzOfBk
Let's remember: the US govt went after Aaron Swartz with everything they had, to put him away for 35 years for DOWNLOADING JOURNAL ARTICLES.
Here's the thing about Aaron Swarz: whenever you heard about any project to increase access ti information, he was involved in it.
Such a shame about Aaron Swartz. Most of us, myself included, can't understand of the dark mental states severe enough to lead to suicide.
Hearing about Aaron, like Brad Delp and every suicude hurts so much… I always feel that if they lost the battle. So could I… so could anyone
My timeline looks like the day Steve Jobs died, mourning Aaron Swartz. He was an inspiration to all. His work is influencing decades. <3
Aaron dead. World wanderers, we have lost a wise elder. Hackers for right, we are one down. Parents all, we have lost a child. Let us weep.
Scripting News: People are asking about the history of RSS today because of Aaron's passing. http://t.co/U7phKebk
I knew nothing of Aaron Swartz personally, but I’ve been aware of him for years. And this just sucks so much. We lost someone important.
The best tribute we can offer Aaron Swartz is to do what he did at his amazing best: work to expand an open Net and stop govt abuses.
If its any consolation, when I ran into Aaron on Thursday he seemed happy and surrounded by friends. How I'll choose to always remember him.

Although Aaron Swartz hung around MIT before the JStore business, he'd not want to be called an MIT person. Call him a hacker, which he was.
I never doubted Aaron would be OK; I had an unshakable faith in him. I just assumed he could and would think his way out of anything.

Deeply saddened by the loss of Aaron Swartz. I was privileged to work w/him on PIPA/SOPA. His advocacy for the greater good will be missed.
“@ladywhimsy: Posthumously pardon Aaron Swartz. http://t.co/m2MVQfqz” it's literally the least the government can do.
Corporations are notoriously overly generous with people they think wronged them, so of course the government had to step in to hound Aaron.

You’ve honored Aaron Swartz by acknowledging what he did before he died. Now honor him by doing what he might have done.
I have read thousands of words now about Aaron. I find I am getting more and more furious at myself for not doing more.
