Picture 4Our friends over at Techcrunch Europe have dug up a nasty twitter account this afternoon.

The account, under the name dinner_guest is only followed by 3 people (at this time) but seems to describe actions of a Brighton (UK) based murderer.

Irrespective of it’s truth, it’s an extremely dark account to read and your imagination can’t help but consider the consequences of this were it true.

The odd thing is that there appears to be no humor attached to any of the tweets either which can’t help but lead your mind to the darkest of conclusions.

Of course, as a few people have already pointed out – this could just be some rather clever publicity stunt.

Ironically the account seems to have appeared on the scene just as the UK police have announced they are to begin using the tool as a means of communication and surveilance.

We’ll keep you updated.
