(Cincinnati.com) -- Alyssa Douglas, a high school girl from the Clarksville area of Ohio, sent out a tweet Thursday night saying: "Someone needs to assassinate Obama...like ASAP #DieYouPieceOfS---"

Now the Secret Service is investigating the threat. The Clinton-Massie School District had a meeting with Douglas and her parents.

Bloggers and Twitter users followed the incident Friday with a discussion of hate speech.

The local Secret Service office said it will report its findings to the U.S. Attorney's Office for Southern District of Ohio. It is possible that the tweet will be determined to be not a legitimate threat to the president's well being.

A North Carolina man was charged this week after making a much more specific threat via Twitter toward Obama.

The Associated Press reported that Donte Jamar Sims was detained Wednesday after posting messages including one that said, "Ima Assassinate president Obama this evening!" on Monday morning, two days before Obama arrived in Charlotte for the Democratic National Convention.
