Twitter Grants Verification To Muslim Brotherhood Account

Just two weeks ago Twitter banned users linked with the white nationalist alt-right movement, they have banned conservative users in the past, and they are now giving a voice to the Muslim Brotherhood by granting verification to their Twitter Feed.

Ikhwan Web, which serves as the Muslim Brotherhood’s “official” English-speaking feed, was recently given the verification even though they support terrorism, violence, and spew anti-Semitic propaganda, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Ikwhan Web’s Twitter bio claims they are the “Official Twitter of the Muslim Brotherhood” and they currently have over 145,000 followers. The page often posts links to official Muslim Brotherhood statements in English and articles that oppose the current leadership in Egypt.

“Verifying the Muslim Brotherhood’s Twitter feed helps further their narrative of civilization-Jihad,” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz told the Free Beacon. “This maneuver makes the Brotherhood seem like a legitimate group while providing them cover to spread their radical version of Islam.”

“I look forward to working with the new administration to expose the Brotherhood’s efforts to increase their influence in America,” he added.

The blue check mark next to Ikhwan Web that signifies “an account of public interest is authentic” can be seen below:
