Demi Moore uses her tweets for good, helps prevent a suicide



The prevailing winds had us thinking Demi Moore was not a very nice person. Teaching your child to pole dance will make others think less of you. But it seems that she and actor Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding -- has she done anything since that?) were part of a string of people who led police in Juice_mrskutcherCasselberry to a young man who was threatening suicide. It would seem that mrskutcher, which is Moore's handle on Twitter, responded to the message from an 18 year old in the town, which is north of Orlando. Vardalos also tweeted that she had given the man's name and city to police in Casselberry and that they were en route. Sure enough, the man's mother said he was "very emotional" and police took him into protective custody. This isn't the first time Moore's tweets have been used to prevent someone from committing suicide. It happened last April in California when a woman messaged that she planned to kill herself but Moore reported it. Police were able to find the woman in San Jose. If only we could get Moore to always use her powers for good.
