David Bowie's Son Breaks His Social Media Silence On Father's Death

After taking a hiatus from social media following his father's death, David Bowie's son, Duncan Jones, made a brief appearance on Twitter over the weekend.

Bowie died Jan. 10 at the age of 69.

Prior to Jones' retweet of the note, the last thing he'd posted on Twitter was this heartfelt message: "Very sorry and sad to say it's true. I'll be offline for a while. Love to all."
