Samaritans Radar hopes to step in by monitoring a person's Twitter feed. When it detects something questionable, it alerts the user.

Although still in its BETA phase, Samaritans Radar will be on the lookout for words such as "tired of being alone," "hate myself" and "need someone to talk to." Those concerned with privacy can be assured that it will only be searching for public Tweets and specifically targets the millennial generation, which has grown up sharing information online.
