ISIS threatens Facebook and Twitter CEOs over blocked accounts
WASHINGTON: ISIS made a life threat to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey over blocking their accounts.
ISIS released a 25 minute long video titled “Flames of the Supporters” which displays bullet holes over CEOs faces.
“To Mark and Jack, founders of Twitter and Facebook to their crusader government. You announce daily that you suspended many of our accounts and to you we say: is that all you can do? You are not in our league. If you close one account we will take 10 in return and soon your names will be erased after we delete you (sic)sites,#Sons_Caliphate_Army”.
The group claimed that they have hacked 10,000 Facebook accounts, 150 Facebook groups and 5,000 Twitter accounts.
Facebook and Twitter launched a campaign to stop ISIS from using social media platforms to spread their hype.
Twitter stated on February 5 “Like most people around the world, we are horrified by the atrocities perpetrated by extremist groups. We condemn the use of Twitter to promote terrorism.”
A Twitter spokesperson claimed that company is not afraid and would not respond as such threats are received on regular basis.
