Islamic State finds 'diminishing returns' on Twitter: report (DUSTIN VOLZ, 2/18/16, REUTERS)

Suspensions of English-speaking users affiliated with Islamic State from June to October 2015 have limited the group's growth and in some cases devastated the viral reach of specific users, according to the report from George Washington University's Program on Extremism, which analyzed a list of accounts promoted by the militant group.
