Purported ISIS Video Targets Zuckerberg

A video purported to be made by ISIS militants targeted Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for agreeing to use their platforms to combat terrorism. The 25-minute propaganda video was spotted by Vocativ on Wednesday on the social media site Telegram, which is used by ISIS. A group calling itself “the sons of the Caliphate army” makes threats against Zuckerberg and Dorsey, showing photos of both leaders covered in mock bullets. The terrorists claim in the video they have hacked more than 10,000 Facebook accounts, 150 Facebook groups, and 5,000 Twitter profiles. A Twitter spokesperson said the company would not release a response because threats are so common, The Guardian reports.
