Some people are still down on Twitter, but this tweet from the IDF is pretty awesome:
We recommend that no Hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leaders, show their faces above ground in the days ahead.

And then the militant wing of Hamas responded with this:
@idfspokesperson Our blessed hands will reach your leaders and soldiers wherever they are (You Opened Hell Gates on Yourselves)

So Israel and Hamas are in a Twitter war (along with the actual war). Anyway, I hope Israel totally annihilates them on both fronts.
But man, isn’t this something war previously missed — to live insult your enemy as you blow them up. Like think of Patton tweeting trash to Rommel as he led an attack. That would have made WWII far less boring. Also, color photography would have helped.
Well, that’s the magic of the internet: We can instantly connect with anyone now, even the enemy we are blowing up.
