There's no doubt that he loved spending time in Vermont, and he loved to share his life on social media. Williams shared with My Devotional Thoughts, "I'm a little goofy.

Even though he was older, Williams had social media down, and fans were in disbelief when he started to use the various online apps. He shared, "I have to tell you one of my favorite tweets I got. Somebody went, 'OMG! Treat Williams is on Twitter!' And somebody wrote back, 'No, that's a farmer in Vermont who takes pictures of old buildings and stuff.'"
