The Taliban Is Now On Twitter

Posted May 13, 2011

The Taliban is an militia group that primarily resides in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Taliban used to be known for rejecting modern TV, radio, and computer technology. But now they have a Twitter feed, known as @alemarahweb. The Taliban often posts stories about current events in relation to terrorist activities. And some of their posts include highly exaggerated reports about strikes against “infidels.” Most of the messages are written in the Pashtu language. [Guardian UK]
