The Taliban Joins Twitter

What do Courtney Love and the Taliban have in common, besides being harbingers of the West's decline? They both have twitter accounts!

Since 2010, @alemarahweb has been posting short updates on the Taliban's war against the U.S. with updates like "Fifth US tank obliterated in Nawzad," "11 US-NATO invaders killed" and "OMG @justinbieber if U h8 infidels plz Retweet!!!" (OK, not the last one.)

When the Guardian broke the story today, the Taliban had a measly 244 followers. Right now, it's up to 645. Probably because their tweets are so dull. Come on, Taliban, don't you know the best way to get Twitter followers is to start fights with celebs?
