Minnesota man claims he was asked to leave Southwest Airlines flight over tweet

A Minnesota man says he and his two children were asked to get off a Southwest Airlines flight and were not allowed back on the plane until he deleted an uncomplimentary tweet about a gate agent. 

Duff Watson told WCCO-TV that he was flying home to Minneapolis from Denver Sunday. Prior to boarding the plane, Watson said he got into a disagreement with the agent over whether his 6-year-old and 9-year-old would be allowed to board with him. Watson's ticket was marked with the letter "A," which means he gets priority boarding. But Watson said the agent wouldn't let his children board with him, forcing them all to wait. 

"In leaving I said, you know, 'Real nice way to treat an A-list. I'll be sure to tweet about it,'" Watson told the station.
