Terrorism Via Twitter? Man Pleads Guilty to Supporting ISIS with Tweets
A Pennsylvania man arrested for using Twitter accounts to threaten violence against Americans has pleaded guilty to providing support to well known members of the Islamic State terrorist group.
On Monday, Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz, 20, a natural born American living in Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to provide material support and resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization, and transmitting communication containing a threat to injure, both of which are felonies.
Aziz was arrested in December 2015 after creating dozens of Twitter accounts that were used to spread propaganda about the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and recruit new members.
