I got an answer (of sorts) the following May. Derek K. Miller blogged "after death" on May 4th. The Canadian blogger did not write any additional posts we know of that were to be released later.
But now, the technology has reached the point where you and I can blog long after we've left the planet. “When your heart stops beating, you'll keep tweeting,” says LivesOn’s tagline. The new app allows users to 'stay alive' on their social media profiles, letting the deceased communicate with loved ones. LivesOn will keep posting after you're dead as a doornail and six feet under.
Due to be launched next month, LivesOn will keep tweeting after you cross the river. The service will utilize advanced analysis of your main Twitter feed, to carefully select appropriate subjects, likes, or articles that would have been likely to interest you, posting them on your behalf for your friends to read.
This gives the term "ghost writer" a whole new meaning!
