Permission denied when Starting Screen

When you are starting screen, and you are unable to create a screen session, and you have errors like

user1@node1 ~]$ screen
You are not the owner of /var/run/screen/S-user1

Check the permission of /var/run/screen/S-user1 to make sure you own the directory

$ chown user1:user1 /var/run/screen/S-user1
