Twitter has given cops details of a tweeter who threatened to go on a shooting rampage at a performance of ex-boxer Mike Tyson’s one-man show.
A US court compelled the social network to hand over records it holds on the user a full three days after an initial request from New York police was ignored by the website’s team.
The dossier of information was sought after a person using the Twitter account threatened to carry out a mass-killing similar to the shooting attack at a screening of Batman – The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado on 20 July. A 24-year-old man, James Holmes, stands accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 in the movie theatre attack.
Tyson – a regular Twitter user – is appearing in a play about his life, directed by Spike Lee, on Broadway. The show made its New York debut last Friday.
