    On Saturday night, when Mother Jones staffers tweeted a report that riot police might soon sweep demonstrators out of the Wisconsin capitol building—something that didn't end up happening—one Twitter user sent out a chilling public response: "Use live ammunition."

    From my own Twitter account, I confronted the user, JCCentCom.

    It took me a bit to find this, so I encourage you to learn how to cite & link stories from other web sites. This is the one from Mother Jones to which you refer above:
