The man behind the threatening tweet spoke to the Daily News by phone, without revealing his name. He said he lives in Florida and follows OWS protests online but has never attended one.
He said the tweet about killing cops was a jest.
“It’s not like I meant anything of it,” he said. “Who takes anything like that seriously? I’m in Florida, what am I going to do?”
What are you going to do? Have a chat with the NYPD, that’s what. They’ll be stopping by for a visit. He’s now unprotected his tweets again and claiming it’s all cleared up. Sure it is.
Update: His Twitter page has gone down the memory hole.
