Twitter Forced To Act Over Tyson Death Threat

Quote:
Twitter has been forced to reveal information about the source of a tweet saying people were going to die at the Broadway theatre staging a one-man show by former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.

The New York Police Department issued a subpoena after Twitter refused to co-operate in an investigation into posts that referenced the fatal shooting of 12 people last month at a showing of The Dark Knight Rises at a Colorado cinema.

Police said the tweets appeared to be aimed at the audience for Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth - the solo show directed by Spike Lee at the Longacre Theatre in Manhattan.

"This s**t ain't no joke yo I'm serious people are gonna die just like in aurora," police said one tweet read.

Another from the same account warned: "I'm in Florida rite now, but it'll happen i promise I'm just finishing up my hit list."

Before complying with the subpoena, Twitter had told the NYPD in an email: "We appreciate the timeliness and sensitivity of this matter, and have reviewed the reported Twitter account.

"While we do invoke emergency disclosure procedures when it appears that a threat is present, specific and immediate, this does not appear to fall under those strict parameter as per our policies."

A police spokesman said security had been stepped up at Longacre as a precaution.

Okay what am I failing to comprehend. Mike Tyson made these Tweets, and somehow it became true regarding the Batman Shooting? Or what the hell am I missing.

Mike Tyson is in a Broadway musical ? No wonder Batman wants to shoot him.

Nothing wrong with twitter or facebook.

There is something wrong with the desire to protect idiots who abuse it.

People sent and still do send poison pen letters to people, SHOULD WE BAN LETTERS TOO?

Seriously, look at the asswipes doing the hating before blaming FB and twitter.
