Here’s How The State Department Trolls Terrorists On Social Media

“How ironic.”

The State Department is trolling terrorists on social media.

The U.S. government’s Facebook and Twitter campaign, launched in December, is called “Think Again Turn Away,” and aims to “expose the facts about terrorists and their propaganda.”

Think Again Turn Away comes from the State Department’s Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications (CSCC), whose mission is to “orient, and inform government-wide foreign communications activities targeted against terrorism and violent extremism, particularly al-Qaida and its affiliates and adherents.”

Here are some of their best recent posts:
