Twitter

Alleged photo of Bree's grave from Twitter user @WeTheEnd.

Using the clues from the six messages, user TJ on Web Series Today suggested that people check out WeTheEnd.

The account turned out to be protected, but the owner readily accepted a follow request by Wintermute, who reported back that the account was indeed what the community was looking for.

Aftermath

The discovery of the Twitter account gave rise to additional interaction and discoveries, detailed on the The End page.
