Twitter ‘confuses’ Iyad El-Baghdadi with Islamic State leader
An Arab Spring activist says his Twitter account was suspended after administrators mistook him for the leader of the so-called Islamic State.
Iyad El-Baghdadi said his account was suspended for about half an hour.
Mr El-Baghdadi had been misidentified as IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in Indonesian newspaper Republika and the New York Post.
He has more than 70,000 Twitter followers and frequently mocks IS. Twitter has made no comment.
