ISIS Threatens Social Media Moguls Mark Zuckerberg And Jack Dorsey In New Video
| Last updated
Seeing as ISIS often promotes itself via Twitter and Facebook, it doesn't really make sense for them to threaten the very men who created these sites.
But then again, 'logic' and 'ISIS' don't usually go hand in hand, so this video isn't too surprising. The extremist group appears to have declared war on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey in a newly released video.
In the 25-minute-long film titled 'Flames of the Supporters', extremist hackers promise they will fight back against efforts to wipe out social media accounts that promote terrorism, Vocativ discovered.
A voice in the video says: "To Mark and Jack, founders of Twitter and Facebook and to their Crusader government.
"You announce daily that you suspend many of our accounts.
"And to you we say: 'Is that all you can do?'
"You are not in our league," the voiceover continues.
"If you close one account we will take 10 in return and soon your names will be erased after we delete you sites, Allah willing, and will know that we say is true [sic]."
Pictures of the two CEOs are blasted with a hail of bullets in the amateur footage which emerged earlier this week.
The terrorists also claim that they've hacked the Facebook accounts of more than 10,000 people, at least 150 groups and 5,000 Twitter profiles.
All of this comes after Twitter suspended more than 15,000 accounts that threatened or promoted terrorism.
