Italians tweets back at ISIS to laugh off invasion threats

Jump to last reply

Did I miss somebody posting this story? Sorry if it is a repeat, but in case you haven't read about it, when ISIS began threatening Rome with invasion -- WE ARE COMING TO ROME! -- complete with scary pictures, some Italians created a hashtag so people could tweet back at ISIS some travel tips.

Some are really hilarious -- Like

"You are coming to Rome? Don't take the ring road! You'll never make it through traffic!"

Or

"You are coming to Rome? Hope not tomorrow. Train strike."

My favorite was:

"You are coming to Rome? My nonna asks how many she should prepare for."

Some Italians just tweeted back pictures of proscuitto, bottles of wine or gladiators posing scarily outside the Colosseum, or nuns (explaining those aren't burqas). I'm waiting for someone from Fodor's to tweet:

"You are coming Rome? Do you know what a ZTL is?"

Anyway, you can google up news stories and see the tweets. Most of the news stories show lots of different ones or you can pick your way through the hashtag itself.
