Airport Tweet Lands Man In Handcuffs 4

Add “making a joke about blowing up an airport” to the list of what not to tweet.

After a canceled flight disrupted his travel plans, British traveler Paul Chambers (26 years old) wrote on Twitter that he was going to blow the U.K.’s Robin Hood Airport  sky high:

Robin Hood airport is closed. You’ve got a week and a bit to get your sh** together, otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high!!

However, the authorities did not find this particular tweet to be very funny. A week following the post, the man was arrested under the country’s Terrorism Act and question for hours. He was eventually banned from going to this specific airport again

This is not the first time this has happens – but it is the first reported case in the U.K.
