Witches' Brew: The Tweets Is Hot

The Tweets Is Hot

Could a Twitter beef have been the catalyst for murder?  That seems to be the case in New York last month.  22 year old Jameg Blake (that's him in the sunglasses) is accused of killing 22 year old Kwame Dancy by shooting him with a shotgun to the neck!  Damn.  The case could be the first in which tweets are used as evidence in a murder trial.

According to the NY Daily News, it started as a Twitter beef between childhood friends, then hours before the incident, Dancy tweeted this to Blake. 
“N—–s is lookin for u don’t think I won’t give up ya address for a price betta chill asap!” …
The two had a rocky relationship and apparently, the tweets were made worse with friends jumping in to add their two cents... you know how the immature tend to hype stuff up.

Police say the messages may be subpoenaed to prove the theory there was a beef between the two men.  There had been a little history of beef: last summer, the two fought over a girl as well.

The victim's mother is speaking out.  She says “that’s not a reason to shoot somebody, that’s crazy. I don’t know what’s going on with that Twitter thing.”

Twitter is the debbil!
