#ThankYouSteve is the sentiment on Twitter the day after Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away at 56 of pancreatic cancer.
“Why join the Navy when you can be a pirate?”
Tweets range from inspirational quotes, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle #ThankYouSteve,” to commemorating his contributions.
“You inspired millions and changed the way we look at technology. No yardstick of quality could measure your actions. #ThankYouSteve.”
“Our heartfelt condolences to Steve Jobs’ family & friends. His leadership helped save the lives of millions w/HIV in Africa #ThankYouSteve.”
Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder, “He gets a reputation for a strong leader and being brash, but to me he was just always so kind, such a good friend and I’m just going to miss him.”
