How to find terrorists on Twitter

How to spot the terrorists on Twitter

The Department of Homeland is watching your Twitter account. It doesn’t exactly know what it’s looking for, mind you, but it is watching very closely to make sure you don’t blow up the whole country and unearth deceased sexpots. Two British travelers were denied entry into the U.S. after tweeting that they planned to “destroy America” and “dig up Marilyn Monroe.” In Britain, where people go to happy hour for breakfast, destroy means party.

Well, it turns out there are thousands of terrorists on Twitter announcing their evil plans in public every day and Eyder Peralta over at Vice did the world a great service and sniffed them all out.
