iSadHours after news broke about the passing of former Apple CEO and founder Steve Jobs, microblogging social network Twitter is consumed with reactions from fans and people who appreciated what Jobs did for the world.

The column of trending topics is dominated with Jobs-related subjects. Hashtags like #iSad, #RIPstevejobs and #ThankyouSteve are all actively being attached to messages.

Tons of pictures continue to pop up from Apple stores, where fans are holding candle vigils, paying their respects to Jobs. Also, several people are passing around video links of old Steve Job commencement speeches, past Apple keynotes and early TV interviews.

The most frequently tweeted Jobs quote I’ve seen in scanning these reactions is based on his personal philosophy on life and work: “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to love what you do.”

We’ve collected some of the tweets and media people are sharing below…
