A man charged with sending threatening and derogatory messages through Twitter to Google’s executive Marissa Mayer has been taken in to police custody and impeached on felony charges by the federal grand jury in San Francisco. The FBI arrested 27 year old Gregory Calvin King from San Antonio.
As per the court records, King has posted over 20,000 tweets on twitter, between November 2010 and August 2011, all targeted at Google’s prominent executive, Marissa Mayer. The tweets were shown to be directed to the initials “M.M”.
Marissa Mayer is the vice president of local maps and location services. At the age of 36, she is the first female engineer of the company and also amongst the most notable executives of Google. King has reasoned that the bases for these profane attacks are because Mayer had falsely arrested him on the basis of being a part of the group that tried to infect him with HIV in “powder form”. King is also accused of being racist owing to his insulting remarks about Jews, Blacks and Latinos.
However, the FBI spokeswoman Julie Sohn is reported to have said that “there is no known connection between King and the Google executive.”
King can face a total of seven years in prison for his abused laden tweets targeted at Mayer. Till now, he has appeared in his first court appearance in San Antonio. Presently he is held without bail and has been transferred to San Francisco.
