Heartfelt note by UK teenager triggers worldwide suicides on a massive scale. Members of the public urged to seek help before taking any action.
The following Tweet appears to have been the cause for suicides worldwide. Scientist are baffled by what media have already dubbed the Green Suicide Movement.
This was posted last night on Twitter:
Police are still investigating the source of this Tweet. An official statement released this morning reads ‘we are awaiting confirmation of the identity of this individual from Twitter, Inc.’
There have been calls for this Tweet to be deleted to halt this appalling tragedy. At the time of going to press 403 people have taken their lives in places as far apart as Outer Mongolia, South Africa, California and Finland.
