    NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department has used a subpoena to force Twitter to disclose information about the source of a tweet saying “people are gonna die” at the Broadway theater staging a one-man show by former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson, the department said Tuesday.

    The NYPD sought the subpoena after Twitter refused to cooperate in a probe of ominous posts that referenced the shooting deaths last month of 12 people last month at a showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater, said NYPD spokesman Paul Browne.

    Police received new information from Twitter on Tuesday “that we’re using as part of our ongoing investigation,” the spokesman said. He offered no further details.

    I can’t remember ever wanting to be like anybody that didn’t rap

    > there’s jus so much sadness & despair in this sentence it’s a shame.

    it’s like you never knew of pioneers of the civil rights movement, athletes that succeeded thru poverty & struggle, lawmakers who positively changed the course of history, firemen, doctors, niggas in your neighborhood that held their head with pride that all the old ladies looked up to…i mean…gattdamn blandon.

    you might have to commit that. whas 40k after state/gov/tree taxes if the nigga earning it only wanted to be a rapper ALL his life?

    you a sorry 28k a year salary earning screenname who came online to get his weed pinched by a scientist.
