Concerns about brutal work schedules and energy drinks are arising after the death of a young advertising copywriter over the weekend.

Mita Diran, 24, collapsed Saturday soon after tweeting, "30 hours of working and still going strooong." Diran died Sunday.

Diran worked for the branch of Young & Rubicam advertising agency in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The exact cause of Diran's death is not clear, however, local media reports cite a combination of her long hours and consumption of energy drinks.
