It appears Twitter has suspended ISIS-affiliated user reyadiraq, who earlier tweeted images (such as the one to the right) of a man’s hand being amputated. A spokesperson from Twitter said that they do not comment on individual accounts, “for privacy and security reasons.” But attempts to visit www.twitter.com/reyadiraq are now met with a message saying the account has been suspended.  The Twitter TOS also state that accounts may be suspended if they are deemed to be inciting violence or posting obscene material.
