Twitter Messages and Re-tweets Lead to Student Suspensions

At least ten high school students in Granite City have been suspended for comments they made… or merely repeated… on Twitter.


One of the comments was from a girl who said she’d like to blow up Granite City High School so she could have time off from school.


Granite City Superintendent Harry Briggs says all threats are treated very seriously.


In another case, a student was suspended for describing a female teacher as a “MILF.”


Suspensions were handed down to the students who posted the comments... along with several who “re-tweeted” the objectionable posts.
