Tweets emerging as weapons of war in Islamic State; al-Qaeda offshoot’s use of social medias

Bloomberg said that tweets and online videos are emerging as weapons of war in the Islamic State’s campaign to seize a swath of Iraq, with the al-Qaeda offshoot’s use of social media dwarfing efforts by other militant groups.

Over the weekend, websites previously used by the Islamic State featured a video purporting to show its leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, delivering a sermon in the captured city of Mosul. Two weeks ago, an audio recording posted online proclaimed a caliphate across the territory it holds in Iraq and Syria.

The online audience for the Islamic State and its boosters is difficult to measure, partly because social-media companies such as Twitter, Google’s YouTube and Facebook regularly delete communications by terrorist groups under their rules of service that prohibit threats of violence. Nor is it possible to confirm any particular posting originated with the Islamic State itself.

Even so, “it’s an impressive operation all around,” said Magnus Ranstorp, research director of the Centre for Asymmetric Threat Studies at the Swedish National Defence College in Stockholm.

“They are keeping records, making slick video productions,” he said. “And it’s all open. Anyone can get in touch, communicate.”
