Girl electrocuted to death trying to Twitter in the bath

A 17 year old girl in Romania has died while attempting to Twitter from her bathtub.

Flavia Boricea (incorrectly named on some sites as Maria Barbu) is believed to have been electrocuted while trying to plug her laptop in to continue a Twitter session interrupted by a flat battery. Reports on how she was electrocuted aren’t precise: Romanian State television said that the electrocution was due to her having wet hands, although other reports suggest the laptop fell into the bath.

She was found dead in the bathtub by her parents, with her laptop lying next to her.

It probably goes without saying folks: Twitter and bath water don’t mix.
