NYPD warns Twitter to reveal identity of 'psycho' threatening 'Batman'-style shooting rampage

Washington, Tue, 07 Aug 2012 ANI

Washington, Aug.7 (ANI): The New York Police Department has subpoenaed Twitter to identify a man who has threatened to carry out a 'Batman'-style shooting rampage at a Broadway theater.

"This s-t ain't no joke yo - I'm serious, people are gonna die like aurora," the lunatic scribbled in one tweet, referring to last month's massacre at an Aurora movie theater during a midnight premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises."

According to New York Post, twelve people were killed and 58 wounded in that carnage.

"Gosh I'm still making this hit list damn I wanna kill a lot of people," the nut job warned in another chilling tweet about the bloodshed he would unleash at the Longacre Theatre in Midtown.

Investigators immediately sent an'emergency request' to Twitter in an effort to unmask the man, but the social media site bluntly refused to reveal the identity.

"We appreciate the timeliness and sensitivity of this matter, and have reviewed the reported Twitter account," the e-mail said.

"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 parameters as per our policies," Twitter said in the email.

The response prompted the NYPD to dispatch officers, including heavily armed Hercules teams, to the theater. (ANI)
