Leigh Van Bryan, 26, was handcuffed and kept under armed guard in a cell with Mexican drug dealers for 12 hours after landing in Los Angeles with pal Emily Bunting.And let me guess. She then went on Twitter and gushed, "Best! Weekend! EVAR!" Or however an English chick would say it.
Question, though: How many "Tweets" are there on an average day? Millions? So did DHS have some reason to monitor this particular moron specially, or are there really keyword monitors set to catch "destroy America?" Would somebody really say that, if they meant it?
I'm just asking. Because if I were going to destroy America* next Thursday, I think I'd call it "step out for a pack of cigarettes" or something when I Tweeted about it. Just to throw the feds off the trail, y'know?
Dear god. I just used "tweeted" in a sentence.
Beam me the hell up, Scotty. Please. I'm begging you.
*Private to DHS: I'm not going to do that. It's a week from Tuesday.
