A pro-Islamic State (ISIS) disseminator named shabab.al.tawheed on Instagram shares graphic photos and official ISIS videos containing gruesome violence. The account is frequently suspended; as of this writing he is on his 52nd account. His efforts are celebrated by ISIS fighters in Syria who promote his new accounts following suspensions.
Sometimes he boasts of his account suspensions to followers of his new accounts. One post showed the Instagram message, “Your account has been disabled for violating our terms. Learn how you may be able to restore your account.” A user wrote, “Ya Allah you might as well begin buying Instagram.” He replied, “buying or destroying? I want their heads chopped off filthy Kuffar.
