Sup Travellers?! I don't know if you guys remember the youth who was arrested for terrorism after he made a sarcastic threat to shoot up a school on Facebook. But it seems as though making stupid comments online have become a trend that all the youths are doing these days. Just recently, a 16 year old boy from Australia was arrested over a Tweet. Yes, a tweet... On Twitter. Read on.


According to reports from Billboard, a male fan of Pink released a tweet about bombs while attending a Pink concert. The tweet was obviously referring to Pink's song "Timebomb," but the Australian officials saw it differently. The boy tweeted "@Pink I'm ready with my Bomb. Time to blowup #RodLaverArena Bitch." Police found the 16-year-old with help from arena staff, who identified him via his profile picture, and he was arrested.

The tweet "was meant to be about drop the effects, the music, everything—just drop it all," the teen explains. Even so, he's expected to face charges for the now-deleted tweet. His sister tells the Herald Sun that security guards "threw him on the ground," after he had been inside the arena just 10 minutes. When approached by security and asked if he was the boy shown in the profile photo, "He thought he'd won something," his sister says. "He didn't deny it was him. He's not a trouble maker."

You can never be too safe nowadays so I believe that the police did the right thing. But what will piss me off is if the boy is charged and given jail time in years. That'd piss me off. The tweet is obviously in reference to Pink's song, "Timebomb". It is quite obvious that he had no malicious intent. Anyway, whatever happens to the youth it doesn't change the fact that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
