Title: Spanish Oddities
This story is about a person from Spain tweeting aobut a T.V. broadcaster and a former comedian and tweeting a threat to kill her!

Popular Spanish TV presenter and comedienne, Eva Hache, was forced to call in the police after receiving several tweets which threatened to kill her.
‘I’m going to the theatre and I will stab you’, ‘You won’t leave home alone today’, or simply ‘Die’ were some of the tweets she received.

The National Police and the Civil Guard both got in contact with the presenter from ‘El Club de la Comedia’ in an attempt to find out who has been sending the offending tweets. She became a follower of the National Police twitter account, which allowed the police to send her private messages, and the Guardia Civil said they were on the case, but the actress would have to make an official denuncia.

This morning it has emerged that police have arrested a man in Marbella in connection with the tweets, after the BIT, Technology Investigation Brigade identified and located a man who had sent the communications. The man was arrested on Wednesday evening by agents from the National Police station in Marbella.

Police have not released the identity of the alleged offender, but say they will give more details later and that they will do so via Twitter, as this is the media which has generated the case. Speed up to 0:32
