One Virginia teen's journey from ISIS rock star to incarceration
On Twitter, Ali Shukri Amin was on his way to becoming a giant within the online jihadist community.
Under the alias @Amreekiwitness, the Virginia teenager pumped out more than 7,000 tweets in support of the self-proclaimed Islamic State and its radical agenda.
In one of his best-known pranks, he superimposed the group's iconic black banner onto the flagpole atop the White House in an online image. He heralded the organization's "upcoming conquest of the Americas."
