Amanda TrappedAtMyDesk Tweeting Dying Last Words

Social media has infiltrated every aspect of our lives it seems and now it has reached our death as well. A young woman named who was known as Amanda @TrappedAtMyDesk tweeted her final last words after being diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Just last year, on January 18, 2013 Amanda tweeted that she had been diagnosed with giloblastoma multiforme (GBM) which is the most common (and malignant) of glial tumors. This diagnosis often is accompanied with a life expectancy of just 3 months. Surgery is sometimes an option for tumor removal, but this only prolongs the inevitable for most patients extending the life of the patient to 7-9 months after the procedure.

An assemblage of Amanda TrappedAtMyDesk’s final tweet’s was uploaded into a video on YouTube by Shannon McKarney who admits that she did not know Amanda and only found the string of Tweets after it was “too late”. Still, Shannon was moved and inspired to do something creative, here is her compilation-grab a box of tissues first.

It is understandable that this video has quickly gone viral, unfortunately every one of us know someone who has been diagnosed with cancer and many of us have lost loved ones to the big “C” and its many evil forms. Comments and feedback from the public about this story are mixed as to the validity, but everyone is unanimously moved by the message.

“Don’t spend time being angry at people. Forgive them. Life is entirely too short.” Amanda @ TrappedAtMyDesk, 10 April, 2013

Some people are screaming that this is simply a stunt or promotional content from Twitter, and the facts have yet to be confirmed by family members of Amanda-who have not come forward to respond to the video or reactions as yet.

The young “goth” girl with an attitude, an innocent curiosity about life and a desire to travel are small details that make Amanda very real.

Shannon McKarney is a writer from the same town of Ottawa, she also led a panel  at BlissDom Canada in 2011 called “The Revolution WILL Be Tweeted: Using Social Media For Social Good” as noted on her personal blog pages. Perhaps McKarney did not “stumble upon” these Tweets on accident, but does it change her message?

Her message is about the legacy we leave behind.  What do the traces of our humanity say about us and who we were? The changing international conversation that we can all be a part of on social media allows us to hear stories that make us rotfl, lol, or cry like a little baby-what does it all mean?
