Terror group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) has reportedly issued death threats to social networking platform Twitter’s employees and its founder, Jack Dorsey.

According to the Guardian UK, ISIS supporters threatened to kill Twitter employees, and founder Jack Dorsey specifically, for blocking Twitter accounts associated with ISIS.

The Guardian UK states that ‘In an Arabic post uploaded to the image-sharing site JustPaste.it, the group told Twitter that “your virtual war on us will cause a real war on you”. It warned that Jack Dorsey and Twitter employees have “become a target for the soldiers of the Caliphate and supporters scattered among your midst! You started this failed war … 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.”

In a statement to Buzzfeed.com a Twitter spokesman said “our security team is investigating the veracity of these threats with relevant law enforcement officials”.

      Seriously, kiddo? You want them to continue their nefarious campaign on social media? You don’t have a clue, do you? They can threaten all they want. Heathens.

      “The accounts were used by the group as a propaganda tool to publicise its claims and alleged victories.”

    Heavenly Father, these are probably the signs of the end time, but please ERADICATE these groups from their source, origins and hidden places in JESUS’ MIGHTY AND MATCHLESS NAME. AMENNNN!!!!!

      Not gonna happen. God needs the evil scum around to perpetuate his existence. as a believer of ‘end time’ signs surely you would have deduced that God has to allow such to happen to fulfil said prophecy? Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that both calamities and good things come? Lamentations 3:38

      He was too busy basking in the praise and adoration of his sheeple whilst ISIS butchered his anointed and even beheaded the lil children he said thou shalt suffer not. I really don’t know who you could petition, Obama & Cameron don’t have the cajones to deal with ISIS. Perhaps the Kurdish fighters? They’re the only ones ready to actually do something.

    I don’t know why they haven’t totally shut them out of the internet, their online existence should have been terminated ages ago

    I wonder o. @xtsy you’re so correct. Why is this still being discussed? Why do they even still have any significant online presence? @Mabel, you too are so right. They hate the west, right? So why don’t they build their own Twitter platform? I just tire.
