School district checking out Twitter hit list

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A Twitter page that gathers insults and lobs nasty allegations about Albuquerque high school students has caught the attention of school administrators.

The Albuquerque Journal reports the anonymous administrator of the sites solicited "direct messages" from students, then posted those messages to the page, allowing students to make anonymous allegations about their peers.

The posts ranged from name-calling to cruel insults about physical appearance to allegations about students' sexual behavior.

A spokeswoman for Albuquerque Public Schools says officials became aware of the original page around midday Thursday and began investigating it.

District officials say there isn't much APS can do about the page unless the district can somehow figure out who is responsible for the tweets, in which case the district could enforce its policy that prohibits bullying.

    Vacant properties aren't just eye sores to the community. These abandoned homes increase the chance of crime, promote illegal activity, and are serious fire hazards. "Often we find that even though it might be boarded up someone has found a way to enter the structure. And as it gets cold, obviously those people may try to start a fire or something inside to stay warm. And as a result of course we get a structure fire," said Community Development Administrator James Allen. ...
