The fight against terrorism is giving birth to yet more violent threats and promises as “Sons of Caliphate Army”, a supporter of ISIS threatened Facebook and Twitter’s CEOs.
The 25-minute long video was first uploaded on the social media platforms whose CEOs are being targeted. You can see a sample of the video embedded at the end of the article.
Basically, what the “Sons of Caliphate Army” are asking from Jack Dorsey, founder, and CEO of Twitter and Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook is to stop deleting the accounts of terrorists.
They openly threatened the two by using pictures of them as target practice and then setting them on fire. Furthermore, the message said that both their names will be will be deleted after they will erase the social media platforms that the two have created.
It seems that the representatives of the group did not think the message through as they first say that they have taken over roughly 10,000 accounts on Zuckerberg’s Facebook that were offered to ISIS members and supporters. Then they say that the social media sites will be erased. Maybe they just didn’t make up their mind yet.
The video also tells that the group of hackers, who also known as the “Sons of Caliphate Army”, is currently managing 150 groups on Facebook and 5,000 accounts on Twitter.
The rage of the ISIS-supporting group was triggered by the public declaration given by both Dorsey and Zuckerberg in which they stated that terrorism or any kind of support revolving around the activity will not be tolerated on their platforms.
According to Dorsey, only in the last six months, Twitter has suspended more than 125,000 accounts that were somehow linked with terrorism or the Islamic State.
The founder and CEO of Twitter was threatened before by Islamic State followers, but this is the first time that Zuckerberg received a public threat.
The founder and CEO of Facebook declared last week that his company is doing everything in its power to fight terrorism and prevent any attacks. He said that the social media site has the opportunity of working with the government in order to make sure that the citizens are safe.
After the video was released neither one of the targeted social media moguls wanted to comment on it.
A few weeks ago Facebook launched a new, experimental program that was designed to fight the terrorist threat. The idea is to create groups that comment positive peaceful messages to the Islamic State followers’ posts.
Even though ISIS threatened Facebook and Twitter’s CEOs, they will not give up on their fight against extremism and terrorism.
