Danger Tweet

A man and his kids were booted off a Southwest Airlines flight because he tweeted about a rude gate agent. Because somehow, that's a threat?

"Safety of flight" is being abused as mush as "officer safety" is abused. Both are used for covering up rude and abuse treatment by those in a position of temporary authority.

Good move, SWA. What would have been a tweet by a passenger displeased at one gate agent, a tweet that probably would have gone unnoticed, is now a public relations disaster of a story that has made it to television and to the dead tree press.

It could get worse, if the guy cuts a song about it. Ask United about that one.
