JM Berger- analyst specialising in monitoring extremism on social media says,” While several dozen accounts have been suspended over the last few weeks, many more have remained online and many of those who have been suspended come back with new accounts.”  Another ploy apparently employed by IS militants has been to temporarily deactivate their own accounts in an attempt to avoid a ban.

Twitter has already started blocking photos and videos shared by these online extremists, while many other social media networks are fighting hard to shut down such accounts but the IS extremist always find new ways to outwit the efforts of social media.
