14 Years Old Dutch Girl Arrested For Sending Terrorist Threat To American Airlines and The US Airways Apologises For Tweeting Explicit Picture

The picture of the tweets of the girl who threatened the Airlines, and the Airlines' response to the girl.

A 14-year-old Dutch girl was arrested for tweeting a threat to the American Airlines' twitter account.

The girl was arrested in Rotterdam on Monday for tweeting the threat. The girl whose Twitter name is 'Sarah', tweeted to American Airlines that her name is "Ibrahim" and she's from Afghanistan, and that she's a member of Al Qaeda and would do something "really big"(picture above).

American Airlines eventually saw the tweet and replied to her that they take these threats "very seriously" and that her IP address and details will be "forwarded to security and the FBI"(picture above).

Following American Airlines' tweet, the girl panicked and post several tweets to American Airlines' twitter account, writing that she was "kidding" and that she's "so sorry" and "scared now". She kept on tweeting, writing that "I was just joking and it was my friend, not me, take her IP address not mine", along with other multiple tweets(picture above).

The Rotterdam Police Department then arrested her on Monday for the terrorist threats. The police department stated that the girl could face criminal charges for the tweet.

The girl was eventually released later, but remained a suspect, pending an investigation and that it is up to American Airlines to decide whether they want to press charges or not.

According to The New York Times, she later offered to auction her Twitter account and made a $500 starting bid, writing "I feel famous omg". But that went nowhere, as her Twitter account has been suspended.

However, the story does not end here. American Airlines most likely thought that this would set up an example for other internet trolls, but this just caused threatening American Airlines to become a threat, following hundreds of copy cats/terrorist threatening tweets to the American Airlines twitter.

Here are some of the hundreds(or perhaps thousands by now) of tweets sent to American Airlines:

And just when you think the story with American Airlines and Twitter accounts is over, a new incident takes the headline!

The Twitter account of US Airways replied to an unhappy customer with a pornographic image(picture below). 

The customer tweeted a complain to the US Airways' Twitter account over a delayed flight from North Carolina to Oregon. US Airways' replied to the tweet with the words "We welcome feedback, Elle. If your travel is complete, you can detail here for review and follow up.", accompanied by a picture of a naked woman with a toy/model plane(picture below). The picture wasn't removed until about an hour, causing countless retweets, jokes and parodies of it. 

The original picture was uncensored. This picture is censored to keep the article non-explicit.

US Airways later issued an apology, saying that the picture was "inadvertently included" in the response to the customer and that they "immediately realised the error and removed out tweet". 

The Twitter account also saw an apology from the US Airways over the pornographic tweet, saying that they've "removed the tweet" and are "investigating":
