Terrorizing Twitter

Trying to increase the safety of the social network, people behind Twitter have found themselves in danger. ISIS, an Iraqi terrorist group, has threatened the Twitter team and one of its co-founders, Jack Dorsey, in particular, as some of the accounts associated with ISIS were blocked. The image below was posted yesterday on JustPaste.it. The post that accompanied the image, accused Twitter of “starting a war” which made the employees “a target for the soldiers of the Caliphate and supporters.”

“We told you from the beginning it’s not your war, but you didn’t get it and kept closing our accounts on Twitter, but we always come back. But when our lions come and take your breath, you will never come back to life.” As Twitter's terms of use do not allow “direct, specific threats of violence against others” the company has recently started taking active actions against pro-terrorist accounts, keeping people behind them off the social network.

Buzzfeed reports that Twitter security team is currently working with the law enforcement officials to investigate “the veracity of these threats.”
