THIS from ABC NEWS:
“We have an intelligence division whose mission is to assess information that we receive every day for dangerousness or potential threat level,” Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told ABC News. “We are aware of the image and will take the necessary and appropriate follow up steps.”
The Secret Service did not respond to an additional question about whether the tweet was believed to be authentic. The FBI has not yet responded to ABC News’ request for comment on the tweet, its suspected origin, or whether it signifies a serious threat to the U.S.
I am not a proponent of censorship, but an observer of the strange. The strange being this: The amount of Twitter, Tumblr, and Blogger sites that get shut down with regularity every day.. but so many threatening Twitter accounts are permitted to keep on tweetin’ like there’s no tomorrow ..
