'Trappedatmydesk’, named only as Amanda on the site, tweeted about many mundane aspects of her life including fights with co-workers, being asked to work on the weekends and about being a goth.

When she was diagnosed with brain cancer, she tweeted about that too.

Her final months and weeks were documented on the social networking site and show us all how fragile life really is.

She tweeted openly about calling her mother, who “hasn’t spoken to me in five years”, adding “Forgive… life is too short”.

She said goodbye to her Twitter followers on the night she went into hospital with the hashtag #quietlastnight, and the final tweet from her account was sent by her brother James the next day, to inform her followers of her passing.

This video will make you think about the tweets and the social media impressions we will all leave behind one day.

Watch the video above and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
