Ed Koch passed away this morning, but the @MayorEdKoch account lives on, retweeting and favoriting remembrances of the legendary New York City mayor.
I didn't know how Koch was doin' as Mayor at the time, but my dad was his bodyguard + I remember him being a good guy. pic.twitter.com/oe6pF0QE

When I was a nobody reporter, he would still take my calls. I remember it being such a thrill. RIP @mayoredkoch

I wrote to Koch when I was 10 asking that he get rid of rats in park. He wrote back promptly promising that he would.

The account also tweeted while Koch was in the intensive care unit.

Call us crazy, but we’re guessing an aide is using the former mayor’s Twitter account to share many of the lovely tributes and memories with retweets.
