When Eduardo was 13 years old he was going through stuff that made him think that giving up was the only solution to his problems. When he wondered if there were others out there struggling through the same issues as him, he decided to make the @EndBullyinNow account. When he found out that he wasn't the only person who was feeling suicidal because of being bullied while at the same time having to deal with his parents splitting apart, he found an escape. Almost a year later after creating the account and do much better, he decided to share his story with his followers (http://www.twitlonger.com/show/ibnqi4). As time went by, people tweeted and messaged him telling him that his story has inspired them and others said it has helped them realize that one day it will get better. Eduardo who runs the @EndBullyinNow account, used his experiences and struggles to help others, not only going the same stuff as him, but helping those who are just going through a dark time.
