The Secret Service is well known to watch Twitter for threats and take action and they have their work cut out for themselves.
Since the moment Donald Trump won the election, Twitter has been exploding with people calling for president-elect Donald Trump to be assassinated!
Do people have no common sense? Do they not know this is reason to have the Secret Service show up at their front door?
Take a look for yourself: Twitter Trump Assassinated search.
Here are just a few:

Where is Twitter in all of this? They sure do love being the police when it is a conservative stating a simple opine against Islamic extremists! They are leaving this entirely unchecked.
Beginning Wednesday, dozens of Tweets appeared, explicitly calling for Donald Trump’s assassination. Most of the tweets appear to be from accounts of black Americans.
Such calls for violence are a direct violation of Twitter’s terms of service, however at press time all of these accounts are still active. This is troubling given Twitter’s recent history of what appears to be a war on conservative media, including their unexplained de-verification of Breitbart tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’s account.
The media has once again made its business to play up racial tensions, reducing Trump’s stances against illegal immigration and Muslim terrorism to “racism.”
Most of the tweets come from the youth of this nation and that is so sad. I understand being disappointed. But when did our citizens become so vile? We have lost much of our moral standard. We are in decline and we better walk away from that edge.
The ugly rhetoric is dangerous and sad. What happens when this generation becomes parents? What happens when they are leading the nation?
The irony is that many media outlets stated that Trump supporters would be likely to stage violent activities if they lost the election.
Twitter has not been the only place that the ugliness has reared its head. This same mentality is breaking out into the streets.
