PA 20638393 James Foley: Twitter Mob Put ISIS to The Hashtag Sword And End Free Speech

 

SO. How do you repsond to the news that Islamists have murderd US journalist James Foley? Bombs would be one idea. Arming their more local intended victims would be another. But the Telegraph reports on what Twitter can do:

Thousands of ordinary users from around the world have also backed the plan to deny IS publicity in horror at what they have done, using the hashtag #ISISmediablackout.

Deny IS publicity by ending all your tweets with ‘ISIS’. Genius. The murderous loons will be quaking in their sandals at this affront to free speech…
