Twitter is being subpoenaed by the NYPD to provide user information for someone threatening to blow up the theater where Mike Tyson is performing his one-man show.

“This s**t ain’t no joke yo I’m serious people are gonna die just like in aurora,” the user tweeted Aug. 1.

A few days earlier, the unidentified person tweeted that he or she knew that the theater left its exit doors unlocked and was going to plan the shooting “step by step.”

The NYPD Intelligence Division learned of the threat late Aug. 3 and used Twitter’s system for emergencies to request the identity of the account holder, according to police officials.
