UPDATE:

This diary was published yesterday under the title:

Should the Secret Service Investigate this Tweet?

While @LauraFlyMe's Twitter account is still active, the link to a tweet that read like a threat to Obama now shows "This Twitter Page does not exist."

This development adds new light to the dialogue below.

What do you think happened?

This tweet has been up many hours:  

If you scroll her page you will notice that a few people have already used the @ command to forward the tweet to the official Secret Service Twitter page:

And here is a similar response:

Others took a more academic approach, saying things like:

"Thanks for making us Christians look bad."

Her message crosses the line.

And is @LauraFlyMe involved in the airline industry? Maybe. A quick read of the site
‏shows it to be either a fake or a generic profile. As tytalus points out in the comments below:

"That background looks old. seems to be an old advertising campaign from National Airlines dating back to the 1970s."
The page is also filled with other extremist rants.

What do you think the consequences should be?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
