Twitter Kills

koutaro-bathing-girl.jpg

Vapid social networking site Twitter claimed the life of another hapless victim with more finality than usual recently when the girl in question accidentally electrocuted herself whilst trying to keep up with her tweets.

The 17-year-old girl in question, a resident of Romania, was using the web-based social networking application in the bath; it seems her Twittering session extended for such a long period of time that the battery of her laptop died.

Rather than interrupt either her bathing or her Twittering, she instead attempted to plug in her laptop to the adapter, but unfortunately did so with wet hands.

It seems it was either the shock from the mains or from subsequently dropping her laptop into the bath which killed her, for she was found by her parents lying lifeless with her laptop by her side.

Via the Austrian Times.

We do not hear what her last Tweet was…

    LMFAO!!! Oh man, this is terrible. If there is a hell, I am going there when I die, because I laughed my ass off when reading this.

    Darwin Award lulz etc, whatever, a 17 year old girl died.
    Is it her fault? Obviously. Should she have known better then to do something like that? Obviously.

    But how is a teenage girls death, no matter the circumstance, actually hilarious to some of you?

    Not complaining about article at all, but 90% of these comments are pretty terrible.

    I don't think they are laughing at the girl dying, they are laughing at the way in which she died which involved the twitter program.

    Obviously if your going to take the context out of things its not funny. Besides why are you even on this site if it disgusts you to see morals fly out the window?

    A 17 year old should know not to use electronics while in the bath tub. This girl was stupid enough to plug her laptop in to an electrical socket with wet hands because she couldn't be bothered to stop using her precious twitter for a few minutes. This girl deserves her darwin award and hopefully this convinces some people not to be so obsessive about these websites (CNN I'm looking at you).

    If this type of stuff offends you then I recommend that you stop using the internet because these types of comments are everywhere. You shouldn't expect a bunch of anonymous people to show compassion for every idiot that kills themselves in these utterly ridiculous ways because, as heartless as it sounds, there are a lot of people that believe the world would be a better place without those idiots.

    That's why is always better to take something like a portable console or a small -unplugged- laptop in the bath (IF you actually decide to soak with an electric device against all common sense)

    Some people... I wonder why she couldn't just relax and wait to finish her bath to use twitter. Gosh, is not like the site is going to run away.

    That's the same of being proud of not having a cellphone, like some old people do.

    I'm amazed that no one has simply suggested a waterproof computer built into the shower/bath. Sort of like those fridges with TV's built into them.

    Poor girl. She may have survived in a futuristic setting.

    downright stupid.... why do women always have to use such stupid sites like twitter to keep up their social contacts? Women,men will never understand them because women never grow up and still behave like kids, doing such brainless acts like using electric devices in the bath <_<

    This is very sad. I love technology,but taking a laptop in the bath is a bit much. Something I don't understand is what the need for Tweeter is? Since there are already instant message programs and texting via cell phones, Tweeter seems a little redundant.

    why the hell would you even bring an electronic device in the bath anyway? if you're so addicted, then hasten your bathing process and resume your activity. damn. people these days. all logic just flies out the window.

    i do feel sorry for the girl, but not for how it happened. it's pure stupidity.

    I hate the boobs in this picture.

    Because a normal woman's boobs stand up abnormally when she's in the bathtub like someone's holding them up from behind.

    The nipples should be further down.

    No one is important enough to warrant going onto social networking sites while in the bathtub.

    Especially not someone from Romania.

    This isn't new. Twitter is used to hunt down, arrest, and and kill protesters in Iran right now.

    What a TWIT--ter... I'm betting they found her still holding the wire on one hand while looking like she's Still trying to twitter away on the other while it's happening. Those last messages must still be in debate into what she was trying to say as she was frying.

    A excerpt(perhaps?):
