no title

Praise Twitter.

Facebook may be the most prominent social media site on the Internet, but anyone who's anyone knows that Twitter is the real golden goose when it comes to staying in the know.

But ruling the roost does come with its fair share of disadvantages as well — in this case, heavy numbers of users associated with ISIS and other terrorist organizations.

Luckily for all of us who simply use our 140 characters to make clever quips, a little birdie told us that Twitter has actually forced over 125,000 terrorism-linked accounts to fly the coop in the past seven months!

But the social media giant isn't just suspending suspected rule-breakers in silent. On Friday they released an official statement regarding their decision to start banning terrorist users on their blog, saying:

***WARNING: Graphic Imagery***

We can't even being to imagine what this must have been like for them.

As you're surely aware, Paris went through a series of terrorist attacks almost two weeks ago that left 130 people throughout the city dead.

89 of those victims were attending a concert at the Bataclan on Nov. 13 to see the band Eagles of Death Metal perform, and while the members have spoken out about the massacre and the loss of their merchandise manager Nick Alexander, their first full sit-down interview was released on Wednesday.

VICE spoke with co-founder/vocalist Jesse Hughes, bassist Matt McJunkins, guitarist Eden Galindo, drummer Julian Dorio, and sound engineer Shawn London about their terrifying experience, as well as co-founder Joshua Homme who was not at the venue the night of the shootings.

It's an incredibly moving 26-minute piece, and while many would probably see the killings as reason to never play again, EODM stated that they're actually doing the opposite — using the ordeal to provoke positive change in the world.

The Department writes on its travel page:

"Current information suggests that ISIL (aka Da'esh), al-Qa'ida, Boko Haram, and other terrorist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions. These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics, using conventional and non-conventional weapons and targeting both official and private interests."

The site continues by referencing recent terror targets and tragedies, adding:

"Authorities believe the likelihood of terror attacks will continue as members of ISIL/Da'esh return from Syria and Iraq. Additionally, there is a continuing threat from unaffiliated persons planning attacks inspired by major terrorist organizations but conducted on an individual basis. Extremists have targeted large sporting events, theatres, open markets, and aviation services. In the past year, there have been multiple attacks in France, Nigeria, Denmark, Turkey, and Mali. ISIL/Da'esh has claimed responsibility for the bombing of a Russian airliner in Egypt."

In order to keep citizens informed and cautious during the popular travel time, the Department also offered up suggestions about ways to stay safe, saying:
