A Southwest Airlines passenger claims a tweet got him kicked off a plane.

Duff Watson, who has priority boarding, says he tweeted about a rude gate agent who wouldnt let his children, ages six and nine, board the flight with him.

Watson said he tweeted "something to the effect of, 'Wow, rudest agent in Denver. Kimberly S, gate C39, not happy @SWA."

Shortly after, Watson says he and his children were asked to leave the plane because the gate agent felt "threatened."

Watson said he was also forced to delete the tweet.

The father and the children were eventually allowed back on the plane.

Southwest Airilnes confirms a passenger was removed from the plane and that the incident is under review.
