Woman tweets about working 30 hours straight and dies the next day


A woman in her 20s died after being overworked. According to the Asian publication Mumbrella, Mita Diran died due to heart failure and working long hours.

Diran worked as a copywriter for the advertising agency Y&R in Jakarta, Indonesia, for over one year. She would often tweet about working long hours and drinking energy drinks to stay awake. Her father said that she went into a coma after working three days straight.

Her last tweet before dying read: “30 hours of working and still going strong.”

Below are a few of her tweets that detailed her rigorous work schedule and eating junk food to stay awake.

      Sad, she was kinda cute? That’s such an odd thing to say regarding someone’s death.

      If she was ugly, would you not have cared?

        No, he wouldn’t have. That’s another unfortunate part of capitalism.

        What strikes me most is she enjoyed being overworked.

        sorry you didnt get the point, poor people are disposable, if you where just looking for an excuse to be outraged thats fine though, (if ur poor, your disposable even if your attractive..though that was a given in our society)

    Gotta take care of yourself FIRST! This is not normal. Especially if it’s not your company. Clock out and go the hell HOME! Take a nap. Eat some real food. Don’t do this.

      And get fired, then starve to death. Not a lot of non-death options.

        I guess you can alternatively go to work and die anyway.
