‘Dawn’ app

16 Jun, 2014

ISIS publishes an Arabic-language Android app titled ‘Dawn of Glad Tidings’ or ‘Dawn.’ After users provide personal information, the app tweets content created by ISIS including hashtags, images and links over the user’s account. With hundreds of users, the app reaches an all-time high of 40,000 tweets in a day during ISIS’s invasion of Mosul. This places an image of an armed fighter gazing at the ISIS flag flying over Mosul with the caption ‘We are coming, Baghdad,’ near the top of image searches for the Iraqi capital city.
