(Newser) – A Florida Atlantic University student unhappy about an early morning exam now has to get up for court hearings as well. Police say that after his data structure professor scheduled a 7am exam, Rafael Decomas tweeted: "Bey I gern f---ing kill dis professor bey this is my confession to a premeditated murder," using the handle @Ashelaniqua. Police say they tracked the 20-year-old down through his Twitter profile's link to the Caribbean Student Association, Local 10 reports.

The Boca Raton resident was charged with making a written threat to kill and released on $5,000 bond. According to a police report seen by the Miami Herald, Decomas told officers he "did not intend to harm anyone and tweeted the post out of frustration" after realizing that he would have get up at 5am to get to the exam in time. He "advised that he deleted the post soon after publishing it," the report states. (This man was blocked from Twitter after threatening to kill a mosquito.)
