Utah used Twitter to announce an execution? I know some people might think that is callous but, if you don’t want your execution broadcast on Twitter, don’t end up death row. Problem solved.
"I just gave the go ahead to Corrections Director to proceed with Gardner's execution. May God grant him the mercy he denied his victims," the attorney general wrote. The message would have been seen by the 7,000 or so users who "follow" Mr Shurtleff on Twitter.
