Need Help? Tweet Your SOS to @mrskutcher

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Let's face it: Celebrities are people, too. People who...Twitter. The wherefores and hows of the issue notwithstanding, sometimes a 140 or less character Tweet is worth a thousand words. Or, if you are Sandie Guy and a fan of Demi Moore, it's worth your life.

Friday, @sandieguy posted a Tweet to @mrskutcher: “getting a knife, a big one that is sharp. Going to cut my arm down the whole arm so it doesn’t waste time.” Although Moore didn't know her, she was still alarmed, and her followers sprung into action; several of them called the San Jose police, and they located the woman, who is now home from the psych ward and feeling bolstered.

Guy says she is "grateful" and wants to pay back the unprecedented kindness the universe has shown her (she also wants us all to go see every "Kutcher movie" three times). She's also gone from ranting in the presence of no followers to having over 700. For her part, Moore said in a Tweet: "Today was a prime example of the power of collective consciousness and our incredible ability to create change when we come together!" So you never know...Twitter could save your life.
