ISIS have been known to propagate their acts of fear round the world using social media including Twitter.
A specific warning was directed at Twitter staff at their headquarters, warning they would 'bring the war' to San Francisco.
The tweets from the now suspended account read:
'#TheConceptOfLoneWolfAttacks The time has arrived to respond to Twitter's management by directly attacking their employees and physically assassinating them!! Those who will carry this out are the sleepers cells of death.'
It continued: 'Twitter management should know that if they do not stop their campaign in the virtual world, we will bring the war to them in the real world on the ground.'
The user then directly threatened workers at the Silicon Valley headquarters: 'Every Twitter employee in San Francisco in the United States should bear in mind and watch over himself because on his doorstep there might be a lone wolf assassin waiting'.
