(Newser) – Demi Moore helped save the life of an apparently suicidal woman early today using Twitter, Access Hollywood reports. A California woman sent the actress a message on the micro-blogging site saying she was “getting a knife” and “going to cut my arm down.” Moore reposted the message on her Twitter page, and her followers alerted San Jose police, who took the woman for evaluation.

Moore thanked her fellow Tweeters for their help. “I am inspired by the enormous response of humanity here,” she wrote.
