Carrie Fisher was an icon and an inspiration for her frank discussion of mental illness, her role as one of the strongest female heroes in cinema and her wide-ranging career as an actress and writer.
On Twitter, she was light-hearted and incisive in her commentary about herself, politics, her family and her dog.
Fisher died Tuesday at 60 years old. In memoriam, some of her best moments online 😛 TAGEND
