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.
