Islamic State Threatens to Kill Twitter Co-Founder Jack Dorsey

A new Internet post by the Islamic State is encouraging its members to kill a co-founder of Twitter and other employees of the social network.

The declaration, which was originally posted on JustPaste.it and then translated by BuzzFeed, is addressed to Jack Dorsey, who co-founded Twitter in 2006 and is now chairperson of its executive board. The threat takes issue with Twitter’s attempts to thwart the Islamic State’s dissemination of propaganda on the social network. The company frequently shuts down any official accounts of the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS, as they pop up.
