Though she was one of the last of Hollywood's grand dames, Elizabeth Taylor embraced new technology like Twitter. (That, or one of her assistants did.)

On Feb. 9, Taylor tweeted a link to a Harper's Bazaar interview she did with Kim Kardashian, and a message to Kardashian herself:
» My interview in Bazaar with Kim Kardashian came out!!! http://j.mp/eqQsGa
Before that, her most recent tweets — from July 2010 — give us a glimpse into what the screen legend's thoughts might have been in her final days.
Here are a flurry from July 22:
» Every breath you take today should be with someone else in mind. I love you.
» Because then it becomes about yourself…which is wrong. Giving is to give to God. Helping is to help others.
» That is the thing that will give back to you all the rewards that there are. Don't do it for yourself, because then it becomes selfish.
» Give. Remember always to give. That is the thing that will make you grow.
» You are who you are. All you can do in this world is help others to be who they are and better themselves and those around them.
» Never let yourself think beyond your means…mental, emotional or any otherwise.
» I would like to add something to my earlier tweet. Always keep love and humility in your heart.
» Hold your horses world. I've been hearing all kinds of rumours about someone being cast to play me in a film about Richard and myself.
» No one is going to play Elizabeth Taylor, but Elizabeth Taylor herself.
» Not at least until I'm dead, and at the moment I'm having too much fun being alive…and I plan on staying that way. Happiness to all.
