Twitter makes a big deal about death threats by tweet on their platform, and rightly so. So why haven’t they removed this tweet:
@jvplive @MaxBlumenthal @juangon68 @RaniaKhalek @Wazhmah The way you lot are going I wouldn’t bank on the next 4 days!

Please notify twitter by flagging the tweet as ‘death threat’.
I’ve also notified the following people who this guys supports, but so far they have not responded to me.
- firstname.lastname@example.org – http://www.reclaimtheinternet.com/
- email@example.com – http://antisemitism.org.uk/
In what universe is this fatwah acceptable? I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone here. What bothers me is not so much that Twitter won’t remove it, but that the ‘respectable’ people that this guy would listen to are silent. Speak up!

I will update this post if any changes.
