ISIS creates own social media network ‘Khelafabook’
It was created in reaction to the bans ISIS faces from social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has reportedly created its own social media network, according to The Independent on Monday.
The social media platform called "Khelafabook," was launched on Sunday and was created by a man living in Iraq’s Mosul, the newspaper reported.
It was created in reaction to the bans ISIS faces from social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook.
Recently, Twitter has announced it shut around 90,000 ISIS-affiliated accounts.
Khelafabook, which aims to connect theextremist group with its supporters around the world, has broken down several times since its launch.
It was supposedly built thanks to a platform called Social Kit, the daily reported.
The newly-launched Khelafabook was offline on Monday just a day after its launch and its Twitter account was suspended, according to Reuters news agency.
