American Airlines responded instantly through their official twitter account (@AmericanAir):
Sarah's reaction was ambiguous being both surprised of the situation becoming uncontrollable while showing proudness for her tweet going viral all over the world:
- — Sarah (@QueenDemetriax_)Sun, Apr 13 2014 15:19:28@AmericanAir pls pls pls can I do something to make it good pls I'm so scared I'm just a 14 year old white girl I'm not a terrorist pls
Many of her 17k twitter followers and other users were amused - but not all of them:
- — okay? or nah (@fourchasm)Sun, Apr 13 2014 17:10:09On this Sunday I'm praying @AmericanAir presses charges against the "14 year old white girl" who made the terroristic threats to AA.

"Sarah" is impressed by the publicity she gets:
American Airlines Reacts to a Teen's (Fake) Terrorist Threat
A Twitter user published a (fake) terrorist threat against American Airlines. Although, their reaction was very professional, it probably had the opposite effect. You could call it one of the best (worst) personal PR campaigns in the history of Twitter.
