Girl tweets 'terror' threat to American Airlines; has meltdown when world doesn't find it funny

With the reams of idiotic tweets that happen on a daily basis, it’s probably quite hard to have yourself internationally called out as the most stupid twitterer of all. We think, though, that one 14-year-old US girl has actually succeeded in taking this most dubious of honours. @QueenDemetriax_ (so called because she just loves Demi Lovato) incurred the wrath of pretty much the entire internet yesterday – by tweeting directly to American Airlines that she was an Afghan Al Qaida member called Ibrahim, who was planning “something really big” to take place on 1st June. Of course, American Airlines was the carrier of ill-fated Flight 11, which took down the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001. Just in case anyone needs a reminder of the fact. That girl who thought “Barraco Barner” was “our” president has nothing on @QueenDemetriax_. Or, as we shall now be calling her, Sarah. American Airlines responded like this, which we think was fairly justifiable given the circumstances: Oops. Of course, Sarah doesn’t fully understand what she’s done (or maybe she’s beginning to, now) and spent the next few hours tweeting about how stupid she is, telling everyone to shut up in case her parents find out and delete her twitter account (she eventually did this herself), and worrying about Demi Lovato hearing about it – that, she says would be “the end of my life omg.” Also, this just WASN’T what she meant when she said she wanted more followers, guys. Still, it wasn’t her fault, and it wasn’t offensive, as she then felt the need to helpfully explain via twitpics (oh, the irony...)
