These tweets do not include people who wished for Romney’s death.

Some of these tweets may be sick jokes or demented fantasies, but if even one of these violent threats is in earnest, it needs to be taken seriously. Reminder: While many Twitter users report death threats to the @SecretService Twitter account, the Secret Service asks that you make reports directly to state field offices.
