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.)

At the time of her death on Wednesday, Taylor had more than 300,000 followers on Twitter — under the verified @DameElizabeth handle.

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

» @kimkardashian @harpersbazaarus Our interview in Bazaar came out! You look like a princess in Egyptian robes, love!

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.
