The person on the Twitter account called himself "King Zortic" when he posted the messages to Delta saying: "I have a bomb on one of your planes, but I forgot which one when I left the airport. Can you help me find it?" and referring to a flight from Portland to Atlanta.
Another tweet read: “It was smuggled through one of the back entrances because the airport didn’t have much security around one of the entrances so the bomb is at the back of the plane. Everyone will known when it’s detonated.”
A later tweet sent to Southwest read: “A bomb was placed on SWA2492. It will be detonated at a random time of my choosing.”
At the time, a Twitter spokesman told the AJC that the company may disclose a user's account information to law enforcement in response to a valid emergency request.
