ISIS supporters have issued a string of death threats against employees of Twitter after the company started cracking down on the group's social media presence.
Threats attributed to a group that supports ISIS warn Twitter employees, "Your virtual war on us will cause a real war on you," and threatens "When our lions come and take your breath, you will never come back to life."
The message also singled out Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, who is currently CEO of mobile payments platform Square, by posting an image of Dorsey with a cross-hair over his face.
