People claimed that links with the ISIS posted a threat against Jack Dorseyon, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorseyon on the image-sharing site JustPaste that his “virtual war” against the militants would set-off a real war against him.

The threat read in Arabic that “Twitter (is) a target for the caliphate”.

“We told you from the beginning it’s not your war, but you didn’t get it and kept closing our accounts on Twitter. But we always come back,” said supporters of the group that aspires to bring an Islamic “caliphate” in major parts of Iraq and Syria.

The post went on to questioning how the Twitter founder will be able to protect the employees of company if they happen to become targets of the militant group.
