There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you're under your desk and then hear the gunman reload

Gunman shot through the glass door to the office and opened fire on multiple employees. Can't say much more and don't want to declare anyone dead, but it's bad.

Ok, I was not tweeting from under my desk. I was already safe when I started tweeting
I work at a news radio station and podcast producer in NYC. I have to admit, when I'm in master control (our technical operations center) I sometimes find myself looking up at the security camera displays, wondering if some day I'm gonna glance over there and see one of these lunatic shooters rampaging around the office. It feels like it's getting crazy out there.
Also: NEW: NYPD moving units to all major media outlets in NYC out of an abundance of caution in response to Maryland shooting
edit: can confirm that NYPD officers have been posted outside our office building tonight.
Man, seems like every other day something like this is happening :(
This always makes me think of the Onion article:
Please Stop, No
Wild speculations and connecting random dots does not help anyone.
See, I just got here and that comment was deleted by author. I'm not sure what the context was. I wish if something was deleted, maybe just any relation to their account was removed instead of the comment as well.
Anyways, this is a different setup on tildes from what I'm used to and I'm still getting used to it.
Users should always be able to delete their comments, not just disassociate from them. This is a good example of why—having speculation about the cause of this shooting posted by an anonymous user isn't any better. It's the speculation that's the issue, not who posted it.
No I get that, if it was misleading and not right to lead others on about, should the whole thread be deleted with it?
I like the idea of users being able to delete their comments entirely. But I didn't like the fact that I was out of the loop as to why the next comment was so negative. I like being able to get a view on everything from start to finish, if it was wrong or not.
Either way, I love the way this place is heading and keep up the great work. I see lots of potential!
Ah sorry, maybe I misunderstood. Yeah, I probably could have removed the comment complaining after the initial comment was deleted. In the future maybe this could be handled by the comment-tagging system, such as labeling comments as something like "outdated".
