Al-Qaeda Mocked on Twitter

A recent tweet from Al-Qaeda asking for ideas on the “development of jihadist media” set off a deluge of responses mocking the extremist group.

Terrorism expert J.M. Berger, who has more than 13,000 followers, tweeted about Al-Qaeda’s call for ideas along with the Islamic hashtag the group wanted to use. After that, the trolls took over.

Included among the hundreds of facetious tweets were ideas like, “Al-Qaeda, the movie: Dude, where’s my car bomb” and “Does this suicide belt make me look fat?”

A Buzzfeed article called “How To Successfully Ruin Al-Qaeda’s Day On Twitter” helped fuel the trolling.

Perhaps predictably, Berger has received death threats.
