Twitter Saves a Life

Twitter and Demi Moore save a life. Demi Moore and her husband, Ashton Kutcher love Twitter and have over 380,000 followers.  The other day a woman sent Demi a message that said “Getting a knife, a big one that is sharp. Going to cut my arm down the whole arm so it doesn’t waste time.” Interesting use of Twitter. Anyway, Demi felt she needed to respond to the woman and just couldn’t let her comments go. So she put the message on her page and added a comment, “Hope you are joking.” Several of her followers called the police to notify them of this suicidal woman and the police were able to track her down before she did any harm to herself. Both Ashton and Demi as you can imagine were grateful that this woman was ok. Kutcher then tweeted “Wifey reported a suicide attempt based on a reply tweet she got and saved someone’s life. The woman is in the hospital now.” Demi herself tweeted back as well saying “I am inspired by the enormous response of humanity here and thank you.” She also wrote “Today was a prime example of the power of collective consciousness and our incredible ability to create change when we come together.” Go tweeters!!!!

IT’s a big day for Metallica – the band is being inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Lars Ulrich from the band says “its mind blowing. It’s very very cool. We are ready for this and we’re psyched.”Over the years there has only been a handful of heavy metal bands that have received this honor which includes, Black Sabbath, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin, so it makes it all the more special. Metallica has definitely had their ups and downs since starting the band back in 1981, but they have survived and are stronger than ever. The group even has a new Guitar Hero game out so that is pretty cool for them. You can watch the event live on Fuse TV tonight at 8:00 and you can see Flea, from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, present Metallica with their honor.

Here is an interesting pairing….Star Jones and Rosie O’Donnell are getting together all in the name of charity. The two have teamed up and are auctioning themselves off for a lunch date together with the highest bidder. Is anyone else thinking food fight???. In fact Rosie called Jones “delusional” for telling people that she lost all her weight through diet and exercise alone.  Later Jones did admit that she had gastric bypass. IT is for a good cause, Figure Skating in Harlem, “Skating with the Stars” Gala, so I am sure the ladies will provide an enjoyable lunch for one lucky bidder and a friend. The two have agreed to answer any questions asked during the lunch. If you are interested you can go to to place your bid up until April 15th.
