    If your "normal tweet" includes stuff like "I want to destroy America" or "going to do some grave digging" then I understand your view - but otherwise that's just as smart as telling them you have bomb in your backpack.

    My normal tweets include 10x sicker stuff than that.

    But I would like to one day see that this world has a sense of humor and, if it's not too much to ask, even common sense.

    The requirements to be a TSA agent are really to easy,they should make it a minimum of an associates degree instead of just a high school Diploma.

    The border agency people are obviously out of touch with modern day reality, i.e. 'Tweeter', one British joker can't single handedly 'Destroy America'. and to think he was literal about digging up Marilyn Monroe's grave is absurd.

    Both his comments can be explained in a normal way if you're British.

    'Destroy America' = Is the same as you would say "I'm going to destroy this burger" i.e. to really enjoy it and make the most of it. We say things like that all the time when we're excited about something.

    Grave Digging comment = You would presume this means he fancies Marilyn Monroe and jokes about bringing her back from the dead whilst he was there.

    It is ridiculous, and the world is going crazy, but at the same time, maybe it's better to be safe than sorry. Imagine if he'd tweeted those things, gone over there and actually done them, the US would look stupid.

    Actually, the article is correct in calling it tweeter it seems. There is a micro niche called tweeter dot org. "Where the elite meets to tweet".

    On a side note: This sort of thing happens far to often and is the reason I will never set foot in America. I love the people but they don't realize they are in an oppressive regime, yet.

    In America you can also be forced to stay in an airplane for hours and hours if its a international flight,and it can't fly due to a delay,like bad weather.
