    Default According to a news story, Al Qaeda now has a twitter acount.

    Drudge Report linked to this story.
    http://freebeacon.com/al-qaeda-opens...itter-account/

    While reading this story, I found that the news site here did something they normally don't. They revealed the actual Twitter account name (at)shomokhalislam (normally news companies don't publicly reveal any contact info for terrorist groups).

    But this is actually good, now the general public can see for themselves what Al Qaeda is saying about various world events, and maybe can even find out about a terror attacks before the authorities do, so they can call 911 to report it (although I'm guessing that the NSA is keeping a close eye on the content of that twitter account, so as to make sure they are the first to catch any potential terrorist plots).

    Oh, and if you want to read their Twitter page, just replace the @ symbol in (at)shomokhalislam with www.twitter.com/ (note that I didn't use the @ symbol in here in the forum for writing their Twitter account name, because when I did so it turned it into a "mention" BBCode tag, and there's no way to stop the parsing the @ sign as a mention, only to disable parsing URLs as links, this is something the admin should fix)

    So the URL will be www.twitter.com/shomokhalislam

    And you can use http://translate.google.com to see the page in English (Al Qaeda's twitter page is written entirely in Arabic). Keep in mind with this particular web page, Google seems unable to translate the whole page by just pasting the URL into Google Translate. Instead you'll need to copy and paste the specific text you want translated from the Twitter page into Google Translate.

    For example. The most recent tweet their says:
    الهجوم أوقع أكثر من 17 قتيلا و أوقع 35 جريحا في حصيلة أولية مرشحة للإرتفاع .. المصدر الأخ الفاضل أبو معاذ الكوهاتي
    The English translation of this, as produced by Google Translate says:
    The attack killed more than 17 people dead and inflicted 35 wounded in the initial toll expected to rise .. Source Brother Fadil Abu Maaz Kouhati

    This news is old news. Hell it's so old that the story about the U.S. Military (U.S. Air Force in particular) trolling Al Qaeda's twitter account is roughly 3-4 years old.

    Not old news. It's new news. Go to the news page I linked to, and see the date it was posted. It was posted just 3 days ago.

    Hell, those Kenyan mall terrorists [over 60 dead, the bastards] did live tweets. What a world!
    If each mistake being made is a new one, then progress is being made.

    Update. Al Qaeda's twitter account (the one linked to in this thread's OP post) has now been suspended. Boy that was quick!
    However according to this news story http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2013/09/30...sts-to-follow/ the Al Shabab terrorist group has now put up their own twitter account. One of their posts brags about how the attack on that mall was only the beginning of the attacks they plan to do. Many other posts brag about how they have caused much confusion in Kenya in the government as to the facts of just what took place in that mall attack.
    The Al Shabab twitter account is https://twitter.com/HSM_PR

    It's new to them and new to you, maybe. Like I said the article about the Air Force trolling Al Qaeda's twitter account is about 3-4 years old. Essentially the article paints the trolling as [Al Qaeda] "We struck down a US military helicopter today! #GoJihadJoe" [USAF] "@AlQaeda Orly? How come all of our choppers are accounted for and have been gotten to? Not one missing, damaged, for destroyed. #Usukatshootin #Usukmoratliein"

    Well a proxy only works until it's banned. And while there are many in existence, only a few support HTTPS (the protocol needed to log in to or create an online account such as on the website Twitter). One of those is freeproxyserver.net and previously there was also one called unblock-fb.info (which doesn't exist anymore). Once a site IP-bans just a few proxies, that means that site can no longer be logged in at all via proxy, and will require direct login (until someone else goes ahead and creates a new proxy server somewhere, which may take quite a long time, as the "scene" for proxies is pretty stable and it can be a long time between instances of people creating or shutting down proxy sites).

    I'm guessing the people in Al Qaeda tend to do direct logins (not sure if any of them, except the absolute smartest ones actually are familiar enough with proxies to use them). Most of the special online techniques they use tend to be revolving around encryption prior to sending data, not proxies, or "on the fly" encryption, or any other advanced online data handling technique.

    The real troll here is the Al Qaeda account owner. Anyone who isn't obese enough to be mentally impaired knows Al Qaeda doesn't exist.
