Tweet propaganda a target


EXTREMIST groups tweet more than 100,000 propaganda messages daily that are available to impression­able youth.

Justice Minister Michael Keenan said a regional summit in Sydney next week would look at ways to tackle the growing use of the internet to lure youths into terrorism.

“We cannot afford to wait whilst the death cult radicalise­s our young people,” he told Parliament yesterday, noting that more than 100 Australian­s were fighting with ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
