Authorities have located and arrested a 19-year-old located in Pennsylvania recently, accusing this teenager of using 57 total Twitter accounts to recruit and advertise for ISIS.




19-year-old Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz was also found in possession of a stockpile of weapons, with authorities homing in on this man due to various tweets about buying female slaves and killing US soldiers while using Twitter names such as '@MuslinBruh0', reports Gizmodo. Found inside his closet were items such as five loaded magazines (explained to look like belonging to an M4) and a large kitchen knife.


While it has been explained that not all of these 57 accounts were operating at any one time, Twitter was reportedly closing accounts quite regularly, with this teenager continuing to make a new handle in response each time, continuing the spread of ISIS propaganda.
