(Newser) – Twitter might not be the best place to sound off about your deep-seated desire to, say, crash Mitt Romney's plane, but apparently lots of users haven't figured that nuance out, reports the Blaze. So one Todd Kincannon, a former South Carolina GOP honcho, is retweeting some of the greatest hits right along to @SecretService. And given that it's against federal law to make threats against "major candidate" for president or vice president, the crime could mean up to five years in prison. The Blaze has a list of the tweets; most are NSFW at best, so read at your own risk.
