An online post claiming to be from the Islamic State features a picture of co-founder Jack Dorsey in crosshairs. ‘Your virtual war on us will cause a real war on you,’ The bloodthirsty post said. Twitter employees’ necks would “become a target for the soldiers of the Caliphate” already claimed to be in their midst.
