'Kill Twitter co-founder, Jack Dorsey' - ISIS urges members

ISIS has called on jihadists the world over to set their target on Twitter co-founder, Jack Dorsey and kill him

Islamic fundamentalist group, ISIS is not done with prodding its members to take out its perceived enemies as the group has urged its members to kill Twitter co-founder, Jack Dorsey.

Yahoo tech is reporting that the group released a new post which was originally shared on justpaste.it and then translated by Buzzfeed. The video is reportedly addressed to Jack Dorsey, who co-founded Twitter in 2006 and is currently the chairman of its executive board.

The threat is reportedly in response to Twitter’s attempts to thwart IS’s dissemination of propaganda on the social network, as the company frequently shuts down any official IS accounts as they pop up.

The post reads:

“Your virtual war on us will cause a real war on you. 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”

It continues:

“For the ‘individual jihadi’ all over the world, target the Twitter company and its interests in any place, people, and buildings, and don’t allow any one of the atheists to survive”

The Islamist group has been known to attempt recruiting new member via the channel. It also frequently disseminates content including videos of their numerous beheadings via Twitter.

The veracity of this latest post however is currently under checks with law enforcement.
