Truth in advertising apparently applies to tweets too.

The Department of Transportation fined Spirit Airlines $50,000 for a tweet it sent out touting its $9 fares.

It wasn't until consumers clicked on a link did they find out about additional taxes, fees, and limitations.

The Department of Transportation says consumers need to know about all the fees before they make their purchase.
