Found on Gizmodo: a Japanese Twitter user who found himself in an unusual predicament has been rescued thanks to the ubiquitous 140-character microblogging site.
naika_tei was stuck in the mens room on the third floor of Akihabara’s Yodobashi Camera store when he discovered — to his horror, that they had run out of toilet paper.
Caught with his pants down, he sent an SOS to Twitter via his mobile phone. Several minutes later, an Angel of Mercy who saw his Tweet dropped by with the much needed supplies.
All’s well that ends well — good on ya, mate!
