Twitter comes of age with its first murder

Social networking appears to be quite the infamous instigator in murder cases. Police in New York said that a man was killed with a shotgun after he and a friend exchanged angry ‘tweets’ over a girl. This last decade saw a number of murders crafted in the wide world of the blogosphere. Not to outdone, the high rising newcomer Twitter has joined their ranks. The Police have requested Twitter to hand over documents involving their conversations to prosecutors. The man accused of first degree murder, Jameg Blake, had been a childhood friend of the victim. At least the age old question of whether or not you can formulate first degree murder in less than 140 characters has been answered.
