Teens Are Dumb: Copycat Kids Tweet Terror Threats at Southwest Airlines
Let’s hope this isn’t becoming the newest hot teen trend like smoking Smarties or drinking gel pens. One day after a Dutch teenager became an internet villain for tweeting faux-threats at American Airlines, another pair of tweeters followed suit, this time sending threats to Southwest Airlines.
Earlier this morning, Twitter user @twerkcunt (mom must be so proud) warned Southwest that they are an Iraqi and there will be an explosion soon. The airline replied much in the same fashion as American did on Sunday:
Shortly thereafter, Southwest addressed another tweeter with similar threats:
@WesleyWalrus The safety of our Customers and Employees is our top
priority. Your info had been given to the appropriate authorities.
— Southwest Airlines (@SouthwestAir) April 14, 2014
HELLO @SouthwestAir I AM DEEPLY SORRY FOR WHAT I SAID. I DID NOT MEAN IT AND WILL NEVER SAY IT AAIN. I APOLOGIZE.

But as the American Airlines tweeter learned, that likely won’t stop authorities from coming to check out the situation anyway.
The other tweeter, meanwhile, had this as a defense:
I DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT AL QAEDA IS
