Seven Great Tweets About the New TSA Regulations

Travel Blog  •  @worldhum  •  12.28.09 | 1:59 PM ET

We’ve been tracking Twitter’s many great travel tweets for a few months now, and this weekend’s attempted bombing of a Northwest Airlines flight, and the resulting imposition of new, more stringent security protocols for air travelers, has seen the creation of some fine TSA-related tweeting. Here are a few of our favorites:

New TSA regulation requires passengers must hold breath for the final hour of flight while humming “kumbaya”

I sure hope these incidents don’t hold up my wire transfer from Nigeria.

“TSA - Protecting you from yesterday, tomorrow.” #tsaslogans

It’s only a matter of time before the TSA decides that passengers simply will not be permitted to board airplanes. You know, for safety.

Saving America’s auto industry #tsaslogans

I’m personally looking forward to spending the last hour of a flight glaring suspiciously at my fellow passengers

To better select airline passengers for secondary screening, TSA agents will now be trained in the use of Magic 8-Ball.

Here’s another decent one:

@InsiderPerks More fees, more security, less amenities.. We might as well check ourselves into the cargo area like our baggage soon. Less to worry about.

It’s been interesting to watch on Twitter today!  Some of my favorites ...

@abigvictory: TSA: We’ll treat all of you like the terrorists we accidentally let on our planes.

@oclsc: I see London, I see France, but TSA can’t see explosives in my underpants.

@cheeky_geeky: NEW: TSA Must Immediately Ban All Passengers From Flights Entering U.S.

@fstop23 So help me god, if TSA starts inspecting underwear, I’m leaving skidmarks ...

I flew into Detroit the day it happened,
I thought I bought a cheap international flights and I got stuck for hours.
Also on the way back they checked me 6 times AND on top of that my luggage missed the flight I was on.
Lots of Craziness happening
