This operation which started on Feb 9. is run by #DAESH accounts to suspend people who are reporting terrorist content to @TwitterSupport.
Incomprehensibly, Twitter is acting as if they were at best ignoring, even helping the bad guys they answer positively to fake reports issued by these #DAESH fanboys, lift temporary restrictions set by algorithms on their spamming accounts, and meanwhile Twitter suspend volunteers who report #ISIS accounts (more than 20 already) and let their harassing bots run freely despite obvious TOS violations. A few of these reported DAESH accounts have been suspended but the number of suspensions are as a matter of fact very low and slow in regard to the number of reports sent by all #Opisis people.
The full picture is beyond understanding. Hard to say if that's defective algorithms, pure negligence, some rotten apples in their staff or because some of their employees have received threats from ISIS but there's obviously something going wrong with @TwitterSupport at the moment. We also noticed that the behaviour of @TwitterSupport depends on the time slots. Some are definitively very bad while at other times some improvements can partially rectify matters. But globally, the improvements aren't lasting and the overall situation is clearly worrying. Currently more than 202 persons are targeted by ISIS the list is growing every hour since anybody interacting with one of their targets becomes a target in turn. The plague is spreading and @TwitterSupport does nothing to protect them. After more suspensions of activists and one of our accounts get locked, we reached a point where we feel our presence on Twitter is now threatened.
101 ISIS spamming accounts
TODAY = [Last update 2018.03.02 16:30] 38 still active, 11 new, 11 suspended
After a period of confusion, @twittersupport did much better for 3 days. But is now back to its nonsenses for 3 days.
None of the #DAESH spammers has been suspended today AND meanwhile @twittersupport closed again more anti-ISIS accounts so that's now at least 24 persons affected by @twitter's chaotic behaviour.
So we're back to our first statement: Twitter really has to investigate its own support. Because there's obviously something wrong going on there, especially at weekends and during some specific time slots while it's back to a more normal behaviour at other times. ???
*** Still many accounts to clean. Please REPORT ... again and again ***:

Follow-up list : [💥 = suspended 🚩 = top priority]
We recommend to block all these accounts, especially those who maintain a list of targeted victims :

AVI of the DAESH harassing accounts :
Examples of the SPAM tweets. They use the same format as the ISIS hunters do, but the target in these tweets is indeed a person who is reporting ISIS abuses to @Twittersupport.
More than 50 persons are currently harassed on twitter. At least 6 already get their account suspended. And Twitter does nothing to protect them.
When @TwitterSupport doesn't reply that they don't find these accounts are violating their rules, they might send confirmation reports stating these accounts are violating TOS. Indeed in both cases, the accounts stay up. Strictly nothing happens. ???
