My Final Conversation With Andrew Breitbart From Last Night

Everyone here at Business Insider is just stunned and saddened at the news that Andrew Breitbart died last night at the age of 43. 

I even had a brief–and very eerie–conversation with him just hours before the end.

 Here I was just making a joke about how Breitbart constantly retweeted all the nasty insults people hurled at him.

I had to send out a second tweet to clarify an autocorrect:

Breitbart took notice—as he always did:

And I responded:

He leaves behind four children and a wife. We are shell-shocked.
