Teenagers Tweeting Terrorism Threats To Airlines Is Now A Thing, Apparently

Can we add idiots to this list? via Mike Licht

In an apparent desire for incarceration, dozens of teenagers have taken to tweeting provocative “I might be about to kill hundreds of people” messages to U.S. airlines in a style copycatting that of the Dutch girl tweeting under the handle @QueenDemetriax_. Two days ago, she was excited that she’d gone from 3,000 to 30,000 followers all in a matter of hours, likely made up of people hoping to watch her livetweet her arrest and subsequent public flogging. They got their wish though not on her account which was suspended.

She was released the next day which her copycats apparently took as a sign that this was perfectly acceptable behavior.

What’s truly repulsive aside from the obvious is that every time a teenager does this it costs the government and Airlines a substantial amount of money, as in real money. So, it looks like kids with time on their hands have found yet another way to cost their parents their hard earned cash but this time there’s disrespectful 9/11 overtones. And for “old person” points I’m willing to guess that a good portion of these kids weren’t even alive when 9/11 happened.

Hey, Holocaust and 9/11 jokes for all! Right, teenagers? I’m betting live murder on Instagram is next. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
