Late last night

This needs no explanation:

Most of the tweets related to this incident have been scrubbed, though this item from last week now seems a whole lot more despairing:

We all know how she landed in the slammer, and it’s not something I’d consider the least bir praiseworthy. But I’ll be double damned and pickled in brine before I tell someone to jump off the ledge. I’ve been too close to that myself.

The book, at this writing, remains open.

    Thank You.

    I find Manning reprehensible on multiple levels, but anyone urging someone to jump is pretty much worse.

    Manning’s undergone surgical procedures that have a high rate of suicide amongst their many other side effects.

    And as you point out, she’s only 30.
    (That’s like 13 in millennial years)

    If Manning had enough judgment to think about consequences beyond. “Will it make everyone notice me right in this moment?” he/she might have a chance of becoming more than a pest.

    Thanks for trying to help. Agreed, Manning has issues, but that’s no reason for vicious responses to her crisis.
