Researchers Use Twitter To Expose Psychopaths

Researchers Use Twitter To Expose Psychopaths

Remember the great horror film ‘Psycho’ by Alfred Hitchcock? The movie shows a man with a fractured psyche, possessed by his dead mother, killed a guest. The murder was later solved by a forensic psychiatrist. The psychoanalysis, unraveling of the mystery, the suspense – all is pretty good to watch. But, the lives are not spared, especially in such incidents in real life. Just consider last Friday’s incident in Colorado where a gunman entered a movie theatre screening the new Batman movie, killed 12 people and left another 50 injured. If the psychopaths can be identified by beforehand, many lives can be saved.
