What a day yesterday! Thousands of people from all over the world tweeted their thanks to Lost! From touching to funny there were so many sentiments that it was hard to pick the best. We were re-tweeting periodically throughout the day from our @welovelost twitter account, and we had a hard time controlling ourselves!
Here are yesterday’s top re-tweets – the ones re-tweeted the most in the twitterverse:
brunablack #ThankstoLost whenever I get a nosebleed I start to worry about possible temporal displacement.
lostpedia #thankstolost for ticka-ticka ticka-ticka ticka-ticka.
And a new top re-tweet today:

To see a list of all of the tweets, check out yesterday’s post for a few suggested ways to view them.
In all of the craziness yesterday, we’re sure we probably missed a bunch of amazing tweets, but we did our best to re-tweet as much as we could (without driving our followers too crazy!).
Thanks again to our friend Jami Losurdo for creating such a fun day. It’s been decided that since yesterday was so fantastic, #ThankstoLost Day will now be #ThankstoLost Weekend! So keep those tweets going!
And with that we’ll end with this final tweet:
SkyyTweet #ThanksToLost I realize that it isn’t “Thanks to Lost Day” anymore, but don’t tell me what I can’t do! I’m supposed to do this, dammit!

Oh, and remember to send in your Thank You messages, tribute videos, pictures and updates to welovelostblog (at) gmail.com before and after the finale to continue to Thank Darlton and to share your favorite experiences with the LOST team and your fellow Losties. We’ll post them next week to permanently share with the world!
