Isis supporters have threatened Twitter employees, including co-founder Jack Dorsey specifically, with death over the social network’s practice of blocking accounts associated with the group.

In an Arabic post uploaded to the image-sharing site, 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”…

    Isis followers can only grunt a few words. Where else can you post two words in a row?

    It’s a win win for ISIS. Even if twitter doesn’t believe the threat is real they need to take actions like they do or they loose face with their employees and the public. So either Twitter caves to ISIS or Twitter is forced to increase security to protect it’s staff and their families.

    When will the cost of Islam become too much for us? How long before we decide worldwide that Islam is costing everyone more than we can afford? The fear, the increased security, military costs, lawsuits. We need to demand the deprogramming of Muslims.
