This is the simple emotional Tweet sent by Martyn’s brother, Dan Hett and it says it all.
All day Martyn Hett’s name trended on Twitter after it was revealed that he was one of the 22 fatalities of the Manchester bombing on Monday night.
Martyn didn’t just trend in the UK, but worldwide his name sat above that of Pope Francis. Martyn was a well-loved figure from Manchester’s LGBT community and yesterday many people took to social media to express their sadness, memories and loss.
Here’s just a little of the love that was shown for Martyn as the devastating loss was announced on social media.
I'm so enormously sorry for your loss. Small comfort but I hope some comfort to see him beating out Buck Palace, Spiderman and the Pope xxx

All my love and thoughts. He was obviously a remarkable and loved young man and did Stockport proud x

Martyn Hett is trending on Twitter but for completely the wrong reasons. I hope he's sat with Anne Kirkbride lapping up the attention x
