Twitter Terror: Nearly 20 Threats Against Planes Since Saturday

At least 18 different passenger planes have been the target of bomb threats since Saturday, and federal authorities say even more threats were delivered via social media during that same period but were not publicized, NBC News reported. The majority of those threats were posted to Twitter, with at least eight threats published on the social media site Tuesday by three different accounts. While all the planes, bags and passengers were searched and no bombs were found, the FBI said that it takes all threats seriously and must investigate them.
