Twitter Joke Leads To Arrest Of 14 Year Old Dutch Girl

An update to this story.

Girl who tweeted terrorist threat arrested:

A Dutch teen at the centre of an airline bomb hoax scare has been arrested in Rotterdam.

Twitter user @QueenDemetriax, who calls herself Sarah on the website, sent an apparently threatening tweet to American Airlines on Sunday morning and within minutes received a reply from the airline saying her IP address had been forwarded to the FBI.

Dutch police have today confirmed they have arrested a 14-year-old over the incident, which saw the girl inundated with angry messages.

It's really too bad. She should have blocked the Dutch police too...
