24 Of The Best Twitter Responses To The #IStandWithAhmed Movement

Ahmed Mohamed, a 14-year-old boy with a passion for engineering, made national news this week when he brought in a digital clock (that he made himself, out of a pencil case) to school and his teacher mistook it for a bomb. The police were called and the teen was taken away in handcuffs, before he even had a chance to explain himself.

After repeatedly telling police that his clock was, in fact, a clock, he was released and all charges were dropped. The police never apologized for arresting him, and he was apparently interrogated without an attorney present. But although this was probably a harrowing and humiliating experience for him, a lot of support and encouragement for Ahmed has come out of it. Here are some of the best responses to the #IStandWithAhmed trend on Twitter.
