Palestinian Islamic Jihad has been firing rockets at Israel from Gaza for close to two days in retaliation to the IDF’s successful “precision strike” that killed senior Islamic Jihad commander Baha Abu Al Ata. The IDF has been tweeting about it, but evidently, they’ve tweeted about it a little more than Twitter would like.
This afternoon, the IDF’s official Twitter account posted video of Twitter preventing them from tweeting about air raid sirens going off in southern Israel:
We were trying to tweet about more rockets being fired at Israel by Islamic Jihad in Gaza, but @Twitter kept blocking our tweet for being repetitive.
It is repetitive.
But it’s important.
Please RT. pic.twitter.com/b4Ne2MWi60
