Here's hoping both sides keep firing tweets more than bullets and rockets
"The IDF has long been known for its sophisticated social media operations. It runs accounts on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Flickr and launched a Tumblr account the same day as it launched Pillar of Defense. In addition to accounts in English, the IDF releases information on social media in Hebrew and several other languages.
But Hamas has not left the final word to the IDF. The Twitter account for the Al Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ armed wing, has been just as active in documenting the conflict from a Palestinian point of view. They have not only been sharing what they see as their own military successes, but also trading varying accounts of the facts with the IDF, and have even responded directly to IDF tweets."
