An Indiana high school senior was expelled for using profanity in a tweet. Was this the right decision, or a bit too extreme?
A high school senior in Indiana has been expelled for the content of his tweets.

Austin Carroll, a student at Garrett High School in Indiana used profanity in a tweet posted to his personal Twitter account. While he claims that the tweet was published from home, the school says it was posted using a school computer and is reason for his expulsion.

“If my account is on my own personal account, I don’t think the school or anybody should be looking at it. Because it’s my own personal stuff and it’s none of their business.”

Was this the right call?
