NYPD subpoenaed Twitter: Identifies source of Twitter shooting threats

Three news sources and three opinions. CBS News had a closer look at the problem behind. Watch the embedded video as well.

ABCNews :: The New York Police Department, or NYPD, has identified the person whose Twitter account issued threats of an attack "just like in Aurora" on the Broadway theater where Mike Tyson's one-man show is playing. The NYPD subpoenaed Twitter Tuesday for the user's identity after the social media giant refused authorities' emergency request for the information.

CBS News :: The social network Twitter is in the middle of a dispute pitting counter-terrorism and security against privacy and free speech. The issue is how far authorities can go when lives could be at risk.

[CBS News:] Twitter wants "to cooperate with law enforcement, but they have to make sure they're respecting their users' privacy, as well," says St. John's University Associate Dean Larry Cunningham, a former New York City prosecutor.
