An Islamic State fanatic has admitted sending thousands of tweets encouraging terrorism.
Mohammed Moshin Ameen, of Stevens Road, Dagenham, pleaded guilty to five counts of encouraging the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism using Twitter at the Old Bailey this morning.
The messages were sent by the 23-year-old using several social media accounts in the six months between May and October last year.
He admitted a further charge of inviting support for Islamic State between October 4 and 6 2015 and pleaded guilty to disseminating a terrorist publication relating to a link to a video entitled For The Sake Of Allah posted on Twitter in September last year.
Ameen, who appeared in court via video-link from Wandsworth Prison, spoke only to confirm his name and enter his pleas.
