Anonymous has released a list with more than 9,000 ISIS members, asking Twitter to remove these accounts. In the announcement, they had asked the company to block them so they can not communicate or promote terrorism.
Isis experts think such acts are helpful, but won’t stop the group. These tactics are conducted under the banner of #OpIsis. They hope that Twitter, under pressure, will ban the accounts from the site. The group wrote:
“The more attention it gets the more likely it becomes Twitter takes action in removing these accounts and making a serious impact on the ability of ISIS to spread propaganda and recruit new members.”
We’re releasing it to hold Twitter accountable,” I encourage you all to do your duty not only as a citizen of the world but also as a member of the internet community and re-post this on social media.
This list includes over 9,200 names and most of which do superficially appear to be linked to Isis. Twitter reply:
“We review all reported content against our rules, which prohibit direct, specific threats of violence against others,” Twitter has told “The Independent” .
