The surveillance footage in which the infamous RV involved in the Christmas morning bombing in Nashville can be heard warning local residents to evacuate within 15 minutes apparently didn’t originate with the police, as initially expected.
Instead, it reportedly originated with a mysterious Twitter account that seemingly appeared on Twitter sometime in “December” 2020 and is following zero other users and contains only one tweet showing the now-viral footage from the scene.
“This area must be evacuated now. This area must be evacuated now. This area must be evacuated now. If you can hear this message, evacuate now. If you can hear this message, evacuate now,” the Twitter video shows the RV’s loudspeaker blaring.
Seconds later, the explosion occurs and the video goes blank.

The tweet was posted at 11:52 am Friday, roughly five hours after the explosion.
Mediaite claims the “initial video” was posted by this Twitter account, meaning the since-viral video originated specifically with this account.
This raises a number of questions, including suspicions of whether or not the person who posted the video is linked to the perpetrator of the bombing? Or is the person who posted the video himself or herself the perpetrator? These questions remain unanswered.
As Twitter user “TA32556798” went viral because of the tweet above, calls emerged for the account to be censored via deletion. The calls came from the usual breed of left-wing zealots who think that silencing people will somehow solve the world’s problems.
Some also claimed the “TA” in “TA32556798” is short for “terrorist attack.”
(@jack, can’t see why this account is up. created with one post—video promoting a terrorist act)

The name of the account is ta, is that short for terrorist attack? This is all suspicious
— Howdy93 (@Howdy931) December 26, 2020
TA stands for Terrorist Attack I’m assuming. This account was set up for the sole purpose of posting this video

As of Saturday morning the account and tweet still remained active — and justifiably so, according to critics who argued that, one, it’s a possible piece of evidence, and two, the tweet isn’t “promoting a terrorist act.”
Personally assumption is that it’s considered “evidence” for the time being so the FBI told him not to touch it because they’ll just have to dig it up anyway. If it’s cleared as just some freaky Stan thing I’m sure they’ll give him the go ahead to delete it

Reporting isn’t promoting.
Not that I trust anything a brand new account puts up, but seriously… Promoting?

I agree. many sources have posted the same video. It is not promoting anything and is unbias in the matter.

The RV that contained the bomb arrived around 1:22 am Christmas morning and parked outside an AT&T building. Hours later, local residents were awakened when they first heard loud gunshots and then the ominous warning from the RV.
Betsy Wiliams, a local business owner who also lives in the area, “said she awoke at about 4:30 a.m. Christmas morning after hearing what sounded like multiple rounds of loud, rapid-fire gunshots. Later, after more gunshots, Williams said she called 911. Then, she said, she heard a repeated warning from the RV,” according to The Tennessean.
“Evacuate now. There is a bomb. A bomb is in this vehicle and will explode,” she recalled hearing the RV warn.
When the authorities arrived to investigate the gunshots, they heard the RV’s warning and immediately began going door to door to evacuate local residents.
The explosion occurred shortly thereafter at about 6:30 am, injuring one of the six officers. However, as of Saturday morning no deaths had been reported, though remains had been found near the scene of the explosion.
“Metro Nashville Police Department Chief John Drake on Friday evening said investigators found tissue near the blast site. They will be examined, he said, to determine whether they are human remains. He could not say how close the tissue was to the site where the motor home exploded,” CNN reported.
It’s not clear whether the remains are even linked to the bombing, though the going assumption is that they are. Some believe the remains may in fact be those of the perpetrator, something that would suggest the bombing was essentially a suicide act.
There’s always the possibility the Nashville bombing was an elaborate suicide. In a world where I know of at least one person committing suicide by self-decapitation it doesn’t seem that strange.

To be clear, this is just a theory, as is the notion that there’s something sinister about the “TA32556798” Twitter account and its posting of footage from the scene.
Other surveillance footage from the scene has also emerged, albeit from more authoritative sources.
