It is a wave of sadness that sweeps over Twitter, this Saturday, June 19. Philousports, famous user of the social network, has died. It was his agent who broke the terrible news with these words: “We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved @philousports. We wish we had never had to. You were everything to him. He loved you so much “. Followed by more than 260,000 people, Philousports, affected by myopathy, had become famous for his comments and his witticisms on sporting events. He was one of the most popular Twitter users.
A few days ago, Philousports was the subject of a report by our colleagues from Brut who had gone to visit him at his home in Corsica. In recent months, the late sports enthusiast, very close in particular to Isabelle Ithurburu, had embarked on Twitch where he finally assumed his feverish voice because of a tracheotomy. He ended this report by thanking his 260,000 subscribers for their kindness and support. Numerous messages were immediately posted on Twitter following the news of his disappearance. All recurring users of the social network mourn the death of one of the figures of Twitter.
“That’s what touches me. It’s the people who tell you that you are useful for something. You are not useless, what.” 2 years later, Brut returned to see @philousports at his home, in Corsica. And a lot has changed for him… pic.twitter.com/5ihyiLBJVg
