So it seems that someone had enough ‘cojones’ to open an @alqaeda Twitter account and actually send out funny or rather disturbing tweets on a regular basis. Actually, the account was opened in 2007 – well before the giant micro-blogging site reached the popularity level that it enjoys today.
Needless to say that it’s obviously NOT Bin Laden himself nor one of his many homies.But the wanna’ be terrorist organization did use the infamous picture of the most wanted bearded man on earth in their profile and the bio is definitely one that would fit a man like Osama – “working to expel the infidels from the lands of the Faithful, unite Muslims and create a new Islamic caliphate.”
And like any other person or company trying to promote itself on Twitter, the account also includes a link to their website.
The person behind the account has undoubtedly proven that they indeed do follow the news. I must admit that some of the tweets are quite witty and humorous with a touch of sarcasm, but then again…maybe in poor taste? I don’t know. I’m actually indecisive here on whether to laugh or not. I’ve collected a few ridiculous tweets and shared them below. You can see more of them by clicking here.
Feel free to share your thoughts on these. Which tweets do you find funny? Which one’s are disturbing? Do you think this account is in poor taste or is it funny and should just be taken with a grain of salt? Post your comments.
