The recent crackdown on Islamic State of Iraq and Al- Sham ( ISIS) operatives across the country has once again brought to focus the group’s online presence — in particular the numerous social networking accounts that members of ISIS have formed to hunt and recruit more members.
One of the recent ISIS documents — available online despite the central government’s assurance that access to them will be restricted — has a list of Twitter accounts for male recruits and a separate one for women.
These people live in t he Islamic State, the document states. “They have Surespot and other private messaging apps. If their Twitter is banned, they will always make a new one. Remember to use the anonymous TOR browser or the ChatSecure app!” the document states.
