A girl's suicide note - which was automatically posted on the Internet 12 hours after her death - has stirred heated discussion.

"I have depression, so I want to die. There's no important reason, and you shouldn't care about my leaving this world. Bye bye," read the message that appeared on Sina Weibo on Sunday.

The girl, surnamed Ma, had hanged herself in her dorm on Saturday night, police confirmed.

Unaware that she was already dead, netizens, Sina Weibo and police immediately tried to track down and help the girl.

By Tuesday afternoon more than 54,000 netizens had left messages on her micro blog, and local people were urged to find the girl.

Mao Taotao, a public relation officer for Sina Weibo, said the company called local police as soon as the post was found.

"We always monitor micro blogs showing users' suicide tendencies in an attempt to save their lives," said Mao.

But local police confirmed on Monday that Ma, a senior student from Jinling Institute of Technology in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, had hanged herself in her dorm on Saturday night.

She had set the suicide note to be posted automatically about 12 hours after her death.
