Dutch police have arrested a 14-year-old girl after she sent a tweet to American Airlines pretending to be a member of Al Qaeda and threatening an act against the airline this summer.
The exchange became a viral sensation on Twitter over the weekend after a user called "@QueenDemetriax_" tweeted she was "Ibrahim from Afghanistan," an Al Qaeda member who planned "something really big" on June 1.
The airline swiftly responded that it took such threats seriously and that her IP address would be logged and reported to the FBI.
The user then sent multiple tweets back to the airline insisting that she was just a kid and was joking. Her account was subsequently suspended.
A police spokesman in the Dutch city of Rotterdam told CNBC the girl voluntarily reported to the police station and was arrested on the advice of prosecutors at mid-afternoon Monday.
She is being held on suspicion of creating a false alarm.
"There was a lot of commotion over that tweet being sent," the spokesman said.
