Taliban on Twitter

Many people became aware that back in December the Taliban joined Twitter.  This was a big surprise to many people, especially since the Taliban has made it very clear that they don’t support very many technology based things, especially ones that were created by a Western culture.  Recently they have gone even further, and are now broadcasting their Tweets in English.  This change has more than tripled the amount of followers the terrorist organization has.  The prime focus of their Twitter feed seems to be to keep an eye on those they consider enemies, but there are also several news organizations on there as well.  It’s hard to say how much of their tweets are accurate, and so far the United States Military isn’t doing anything more than following them closely.  Where they will take this in the future is hard to say, but the military is definitely keeping an interest in not only their tweets, but also the groups they are following.
