From The Net to The Streets: Twitter Beef to Murder Charges

October 5, 2015

It was only 3 weeks ago, a teen was stabbed to death for a facebook dispute. Now, we have yet another social networking argument taken too far, but this time with gun play.

According to NY Daily News, it started as a simple Twitter beef between two angry men, Kwame Dancy, 22, and accused killer Jameg Blake, 22 who grew up together. When all the talk stopped, the gun play came in, leaving Kwame Dancy dead, and Jameg Blake accused of murder.

Dancy's mother, Madeline Smith, is appalled Internet chest-thumping could have led to blood spilled on the sidewalk.

“That's not a reason to shoot somebody,” she said last week. “That's crazy. I don't know what's going on with that Twitter thing.”
