Twitter Founder Gets Death Threats for Deleting ISIS Accounts

By Gary Cutlack on at

Twitter employees, including the founder of the social site, are being threatened with death by terror group ISIS, for daring to delete or block accounts associated with 2015's highest profile baddies.

The notice, posted online, says that Twitter's "virtual war" on the group will result in a "real war" being declared on staff of the social network, with the threat explaining: "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." [Guardian]
