He also left a countdown on his Twitter account, beginning with "10" then "9" on down to Aug. 21—six days before he actually killed himself. On August 19, he left the message "3 more (expletive) days man (expletive)". On August 20, "Tomorrow is the day... :-/" and on August 20: "Today is the day." There was no indication on his Twitter account what the countdown was in reference to.
