Terrorists are increasingly turning to the Internet and social media to launch "well-organized, concerted social media campaigns to recruit followers and to promote or glorify acts of terrorism or violent extremism", says Europol. Twitter has been singled out by the European branch of the Counter Extremism Project (CEP) for "turning a blind eye" to extremists, using the media platform to recruit more terrorists.
