(Newser) – A South Korean DJ said his final farewell to the world in 140 characters or less. The family of the 27-year-old man reported him missing after he left a suicide note on Twitter, reading: "I'm going to commit suicide. To all of you, even those who shared the slightest friendship with me, I love you." Police found Lee Kye-Hwa's body hanging from a ferry dock in Seoul, the Telegraph reports. Some of his Twitter followers tried in vain to track him down after reading the tweet.
