Even militants and most wanted terrorist have now got the hang of Twitter. But the way they use it is as awful as what they do.
American jihadist Omar Hammami was kicked out of Al-Shabab, a Somali militant group, because of his ‘narcissistic pursuit of fame’. Hammami who is also known as Abu Mansur Al-Amriki tweeted on April 25th that he had been shot in the neck:
just been shot in neck by shabab assassin. not critical yet— abu m (@abumamerican) April 25, 2013
Hammami live-tweeted his post-failed assassination pursuit (probably by Al-Shabaab militants):
We were forced to fight in self defense &killed 3 and wounded others w/no losses. The main amir who wanted 2 fight us was from the killed— abu m (@abumamerican) April 29, 2013
Since Omar Hammami has survived the attacks, he emerged on Twitter today and tweeted:
May not find another chance to tweet but just remember what we said and what we stood for. God kept me alive to deliver the mssg 2 the umah— abu m (@abumamerican) April 29, 2013
Hammami is notorious not only for being a terrorist but also for the militant groups in Somalia. The American jihadist posted rap videos on YouTube in hope of attracting more people towards his cause which of course the Islamist groups didn’t support.
Also, Omar Hammami has almost 2600 followers on his Twitter account. His live tweets from his failed assassination have caused a stir in the world of online media. While some were hoping for his death and cursing him, others were actually interested in knowing whether he survived or not.
