american-airlines-twitter

This, is also how Twitter works.

Apparently, some random Twitter user thought it would be a fun joke to tweet an airline about some terroristic Al Qaeda like activity because twitter threats about stuff that people still consider super serious apparently is still funny. The user who goes by “Sarah” under the username @queendemetriax_ decided to tweet American Airlines, “hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan. I’m part of Al Quaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do something really big bye”

Of course, AA didn’t take too kindly to the threat and someone running their Twitter account promptly responded saying they had alerted the FBI and security and forwarded them the girls’ IP address and “details”. The tweet has since been deleted. Well, not being fully made aware of the “details”, Sarah promptly freaked out thinking she had scored herself a one way ticket to Guantanamo Bay.

But, there are rules to these things. A) Only law enforcement can immediately get your IP address and information, not an airline. B) you can’t get the IP address of anybody that mentions you on Twitter.

So how did Sarah celebrate her newfound Twitter celebrity? By stunting of course.

That’s privilege folks.
