Twitter is actively used by ISIS activists as we all know, but a new report from the Program on Extremism at George Washington University claims there are at least 300 American sympathizers of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria on Twitter. Such sympathizers actively help and support the terrorist group in spreading its propaganda and actively recruiting individuals on the micro-blogging site.

What was common in such Twitter accounts?

Extensive interviews were done and court records and media reports were studied to create this report, which concluded that supporters of ISIS in America “spasmodically” create accounts that get suspended on being suspected of carrying out some illegal activities, but the game is a never-ending one.
