Al-Qaeda had a Twitter account?

Okay jihad is coming out

It's hard to declare jihad with only a 140 virgin limit.

Leave it up long enough to gather some user data, but not long enough to do much damage.

Slightly OT, but does anyone else start giggling every time Diane Rehm says "Twitter?"

I didn't think it would get suspended, I figured the government would use it as a tool to monitor where people were logging in from, who was logging in, what other accounts they had, and with whom they were associating...

Is this where somebody points out that the "AK-47 machine gun" in TFA is not?
/Or that black socks and Birkenstocks as part of a "uniform" is not a way to inspire fear.
//Dread, certainly, but not fear.

[Picture caption]: Terrifying: al-Qaeda has started its own Twitter account

Yeah, that Twitter account really "terrifies" me... i355.photobucket.com

Concerning oneself with technical definitions above practical utility is not a path to success.

The best way to undermine Al Qaeda is to let them talk.  They're just another group of idiots when it comes down to brass tacks.

Terrorist group al-Qaeda's Twitter account has been suspended after only five days
The suspension comes less than a week after the account went live

Editor: Woah, woah, five days is less than seven days! Make sure to add that under the headline!

Since you did, it appears that it was.

Way to self-fulfill that prophecy.

I would guess that five days is plenty of time for the NSA to figure out where they were logging in from.

"New recruits belonging to Somalia's al-Qaeda-linked al Shabaab rebel group march during a passing out parade."

Is that the narcoleptic section of the group?

I think it's any major metropolitan city's "______ Pride Parade."

I'm more offended by the fact their name violates that Q followed by u rule.

Yeah surely there's a point where potential losses due to propaganda converts are outweighed by having those converts tweet "i'm a convert, lol, @tourism".

Twitter? From the fig eaters trying to find reverse on a Soviet tank? It's just going to be pictures of flat bread and grains...bunch of foodie dicks.

That is most definitely NOT an Ak47, nevermind the fact that the AK isn't a machine gun. Not sure what it is, some sort of submachine gun.

And I've been following Alphonse Cayeda all this time thinking he was the bad guys.

Well who else is going to use the #jihad hashtag?
