Twitchy previously has brought you the story of Twitter Gulag and the preponderance of conservatives trapped within its virtual walls. According to Twitter’s terms of service, the account @obamasmistress would seem to be the perfect candidate for a padded cell there, as threats continue to pour in despite a police subpoena into the user’s identity.
The New York Police Department is reportedly trying to force Twitter to reveal the identity of the user, who last week tweeted a threat referencing the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting.
The user name on the account has since been changed to Casey Anthony (and back to Anonymous Celebrity), and as of this afternoon, death threats are still the order of business (although directed in this instance to a fake celebrity account belonging to “KiimKardshan”).
The user profile now reads, “Hacker of the real obamas mistress account and i am the one making the threats she can’t even get into her account anymore. Aint i a stinker.”
Update: Twitter finally suspended the account around 1:40 this afternoon.
The account has a bizarre history, which raises the question, just what does it take for a non-conservative’s account to be suspended? Consider this handy compilation of Twitter death threats, as well as this post from @obamasmistress in January:
