Honestly, as much as like to give Twitter crap, this seems like a solid effort on their part to get rid of all the terrorist promoting scumbags on the site. Here's to hoping they keep after it.

Since February, "the world has witnessed a further wave of deadly, abhorrent terror attacks across the globe," the firm said in a blog post. Attacks linked to or inspired by the Islamic State have occurred in France, Germany, Turkey, Iraq and Florida, among other locations. "We strongly condemn these acts and remain committed to eliminating the promotion of violence or terrorism on our platform," the company said.
