    In shocking news reports, a Twitter argument was said to be the motive for a murder in Harlem last month. New York police are planning to subpoena the Tweets as evidence towards making a case.

    In a report by NY Daily News, the murder victim died from a shotgun blast to the neck. The suspect to the case has pleaded not guilty.

    The murder case, which allegedly took place in an apartment building on December 1, may turn out to be the first in which Tweets will be used as evidence in a murder trial.

    Apparently, the incident was sparked by the victim who had offended his assailant by writing this on his twitter account:

    "rsvp89 Kwame: "N-----s is lookin for u don't think I won't give up ya address for a price betta chill asap!" Jameg didn't take that too lightly.
    1 day ago from UberTwitter"


    Police sources said the messages are to be subpoenaed to backup the theory that there was tension between the two old pals. It's not clear to what extent the Tweets are being implicated.
