GARRETT, Ind. — A senior at Garrett High School was expelled for posting a tweet that contained expletives.

The tweet was posted to Austin Carroll’s personal Twitter account from his home, but he used a school-owned computer, Digital Trends reports. The principal at the school said the school’s system tracks all the tweets when a student logs in, “meaning even if he did tweet it from home their system could have recognized it when he logged in again at school.”

The tweet did not contain threats against the school, its students or faculty members, according to Carroll.
