Should Twitter Have Surrendered Threatening Tweets?

Marcy, NY (WIBX) – Twitter executives recently changed their tune and say they will now cooperate with an investigation about a threatening message recently tweeted about Mike Tyson’s upcoming Broadway show.

A Twitter user threatened to carry out a mass shooting at the former boxer’s show, mentioning the massacre in Aurora, Colorado in the message.

Citing privacy issues, Twitter had refused to give up identifying information about the account holder.  The New York Police Department said that it would subpoena the information.  Twitter agreed to give up the identity of the account holder.

Should Twitter have voluntarily given up the information sooner or is the revelation an invasion of privacy?  Comment on our Facebook page or vote in today’s Question of the Day:
