Twitter shuts down Somalia's extremists, again

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The flagship Twitter account of al-Shabab, Somalia's al-Qaida-linked terror group, was closed Friday for the second time this year, less than 24 hours after a U.S.-based terrorism expert reported violations of Twitter's terms of service.

The closing of the account is likely to keep al-Shabab off Twitter only temporarily. Whoever ran the account can easily open another one.
J.M. Berger, the U.S.-based terrorism analyst who made several posts on Thursday about al-Shabab's violations on Twitter, said in a post early Friday that "I'm sure Al Shabab will be back on Twitter, but maybe next time they'll know they have to behave like civilized people to stay."
Meanwhile, a wanted American who moved from Alabama to Somalia to join al-Shabab resurfaced on Twitter on Friday. Omar Hammami was once an avid Twitter user who engaged in long Twitter conversations with U.S. terrorism experts when his Twitter handle suddenly went silent in May.
Hammami, who had a well-publicized falling-out with al-Shabab, reported earlier this year that he had survived an al-Shabab assassination attempt. He then disappeared from social media sites. Hammami on Friday took to Twitter to complain that Voice of America had publicized only a small portion of a 30-minute interview he gave. VOA says it will air a special news report on Hammami later Friday.

Omar Shafik Hammami, the American jihadist in Somalia, has been aiding the fight against the government for the radical Islamist al-Shabaab faction since 2006. It has since been reported that Hammami has fallen out with his former comrades and now lives in isolation in the troubled eastern African nation.
