Girl, 14, arrested after terrorism joke on Twitter

(NEWSER) – A 14-year-old Dutch girl found out the hard way that it's not a good idea to tweet a "joke" about terrorism ... when she got arrested after doing so. The teen, who went by "QueenDemetriax_" on Twitter and is apparently named Sarah, tweeted to American Airlines yesterday: "hello my name's Ibrahim and I'm from Afghanistan. I'm part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I'm gonna do something really big bye." American Airlines replied, "Sarah, we take these threats very seriously. Your IP address and details will be forwarded to security and the FBI." That tweet was later taken down, and it's not clear exactly what action the airline ended up taking, but Rotterdam police confirmed the teen was today arrested.

Sarah's Twitter account has since been suspended, butDeadspin has screenshots of the epic meltdown that occurred on her Twitter feed after that response, including tweets like:

  • "omfg I was kidding"
  • "I was joking and it was my friend not me, take her IP address not mine"
