This Teen Learns the Hard Way Not to Joke About a Terrorist Attack on Twitter

Yesterday a supposed 14-year-old girl known by the handle @QueenDemetriax_ made the unfortunate choice to tweet to American Airlines. What followed was a series of Definitely Not Joking exchanges between her and the airline followed by the suspension of her account. Luckily, Storify catalogues all of those deleted tweets.

This post got SO MANY likes, shares and even some friend requests for Kevin Keenan. The only problem is, he didn't write that post. It looks like a family member got him with the tried and true "write something embarrassing while he walked away with Facebook open on the computer" prank.

Only this time, it really worked well. Kevin had to give an update to let all the people hoping for some free tickets down gently.

As it turns out, Joyce Carol Oates isn't immune to the internet joke machine, and took the picture of a downed triceratops very seriously.
