Reporter Adrianne Jeffries says she was just trying to put together a story on people with Twitter handles like @isis and @taliban, nothing more. Oddly, Jeffries found herself asking not to be mocked by someone with the Twitter handle @fart.

For what it’s worth, Jeffries did hear back from @Taliban.
