ISIS Threatens to Kill Twitter Employees, Co-Founder Jack Dorsey
“Your virtual war on the Internet will cause a real war on you,” they warned in a Pastebin posting entitled “Twitter a target for the caliphate”:
“Jack, how will you protect your helpless employees when their necks are on the line and they become an official target for soldiers of the succession and their supporters among you?” the online post states. “What will be your response to their families and sons, and their plight in this failed war?”
The post includes a matted photo of Dorsey with a target on his face.
“From the beginning of this failed war, we’ve said that this is not your war,” the ISIL post says. “But you did not understand and kept closing our accounts on Twitter, but we always come back.
Twitter released a terse statement saying they were “investigating the veracity of these threats with relevant law enforcement officials.”
