Robin Williams: Mourned, Remembered on Twitter

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Earlier today, Robin Williams died at the age of 63.

According to the Marin County Sheriff's Department, authorities responded to a 911 call around noon and found the actor's unresponsive body inside his Northern California home.

A coroner suspects Williams killed himself via asphyxiation.

The Academy Award winner enjoyed a very long and prosperous film career, but he got his big start on television (Mork & Mindy) and appeared just last season on television (The Crazy Ones).

Therefore, a number of TV stars have taken to Twitter to pay their respects to the late, great star...

Robin Williams - Mork and Mindy
Mork the alien got his own show and a house in Boulder, Colorado in 1978. In 1997 the episode "Mork's Mixed Emotions" made TV Guide's 100 Best Episodes list at #94. Na-nu na-nu and Shazzbot became populate words a the time, examples of Mork's language from Ork.
