Mark Leiser wasn’t tweeting about a bomb, nor was he suggesting any other violent act to commit aboard a plane. All Leiser did was tweet that a flight delay was going to prevent a soldier from getting where he needed to be, and that was enough for an airline to stop him from boarding the flight.
The tech law columnist for The Drum and professor sent out this tweet about a 90 minute flight delay on September 24:
Flight delayed 90min. Soldier going to miss last connection & @easyjet refusing to help pay for him to get to Portsmouth. Get right into em!

Shortly after, Leiser sent a tweet explaining that a manager had informed him he wouldn’t be allowed to board the flight.
“You’re a lawyer,” The Drum reports the manager said to Leiser. “You know you can’t tweet stuff like that and expect to get on an easyJet flight.”
