NYPD To Subpoena Twitter Over User’s Threats [VIDEO]

UPDATE: The NYPD confirms to FOX News that Twitter has turned over the information it was seeking.

The New York Police Department has been following threats of violence from a Twitter account and is serving a subpoena so that Twitter will reveal the identity of the person behind the threats.

FOX News Radio’s Courtney Kealy reports from New York:

The New York Police Department learned of the threat August 3rd. They have confirmed to FOX News the exact wording of the tweets. One tweet saying, “Gosh I’m still making this hit list, damn I wanna kill a lot of people.” Another saying “It’s no joke people are going to die like in Aurora”, referring to last month’s shootings and killings at a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises”.

The tweets indicating the site of these new attacks would be the Longacre Theater here in Manhattan, which has seen an increased police presence.

The social media site has, as of yet, refused to reveal the identity of the person behind the threatening tweets.
