Sometimes Twitter is awful. Other times, it can really make you smile.

Over the weekend, Mark Ruffalo was contacted on the social networking site by a stranger who found the star’s wallet in Chicago, and wanted to return it.

“I have your wallet. Found it in a cab in chicago on Friday. Let me know the best way to get it back to you. Thanks,” wrote the user.

The tweeter, in fact, had been trying to reach Ruffalo via Twitter for several days.

On Sunday, the actor finally — and gratefully — saw the message.

“Thank you! Wow! Another point for the decency in people,” replied Ruffalo.

The pair direct messaged to arrange the return, and the Avengers star further noted, “You are a hero!”

It’s nice to be reminded of the kindness of strangers — and the power of social media.
