Twitter users are questioning the etiquette behind Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff’s latest Tweet, reports tech-blog Mashable.com. “I just gave the go ahead to Corrections Director to proceed with Gardner’s execution,” tweeted Shurtleff. “May God grant him the mercy he denied his victims,” he added. Ronnie Lee Gardner was the first to die by firing squad in the U.S. in 14 years when he was shot this morning. One user of the social media site named diptychal called it “… the dumbest most disgusting use of Twitter ever.”
