    By law, 20-year-old Caleb Clemmons is not allowed to use Tumblr, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram or Twitter for the next five years. (Yes, this means no more Throwback Thursdays, TMI Facebook posts and Instagram stocking!)

    According to Gawker, a judge has prohibited the former Georgia Southern University student from using any form of social media as a condition of his probation. He was sentenced for making terrorist-like threats on his Tumblr account in February.

    “Hello. my name is irenigg and I plan on shooting up georgia southern. pass this around to see the affect it has. to see if I get arrested,” he wrote. The former psychology major was arrested later that day and jailed for six months.

    Clemmons repeatedly told authorities the post was “an experimental literary piece and an art project,” but prosecutors weren’t persuaded; Clemmons was charged with making terroristic threats via a computer, charges which could have landed him in jail for five years.

    “It was deemed to be at least a threat, if nothing else,” Clemmons’ lawyer Jack Williamson told The Verge. “That’s what terroristic threats are. It’s not carrying through with any acts, because if there was some act involved, then it would carry up to a 10-year prison sentence … Nowadays, with people being shot in theaters and schools and on the streets, these types of things are looked at a whole lot differently.”
