ISIS Twitter Guards

This ISIS sympathizer (or member) wrote me on twitter “with god’s will we will blow up your head and your family who didn’t raise you up on Islam” because I was criticizing ISIS horrible videos.

I remember in 2011/2012 Shabiha on twitter used to intimidate everyone tweeting about the uprising. We used to call them “the eggs” because most of them didn’t even have pictures for their twitter accounts and used the default twitter avatar (an egg).

Today, most of Shabiha on twitter disappeared, instead, you find those ISIS sympathizers who act as ISIS guards on social networks. I think most of them are ex-shabiha who grew beards. Apparently, there is a law in social physics “fanatics can be neither created nor be destroyed, but they transform from one form to another!”
