Twitter has paid a somewhat mixed tribute to Chuck Blazer after his death on Thursday morning. 

The former official at Fifa passed away after a long battle with cancer. 

He became the primary whistleblower and government informant in the 2015 case investigating corruption in the agency. 

Blazer agreed to plead guilty to a number of charges in exchange for his cooperation with the FBI.
