A woman posted tens of thousands of Tweets supporting ISIS which included pictures of dead bodies and encouraging children to arm themselves with weapons.

Alaa Abdullah Esayed, from south London, uploaded 45,600 tweets in less than a year.

Some of the messages she posted between June 1 2013 and May 14 2014, included pictures of the corpses of fighters killed in Syria which she uploaded to her Instagram account.

Her tweets also included a poem ‘Mother of the Martyr’ which advises parents how to raise a child to be violent with weapons and learn jihad.

The 22-year-old posted around 127 messages a day to her 8,534 followers.

The Iraqi national refused to stand while the charges were read out.

Esayed was arrested on June 3 2014, and was granted bail at an earlier hearing. She appeared wearing the full face veil, alongside her father, and spoke only to enter her guilty pleas.

She admitted encouraging terrorism by publishing the posts, together with photographs and video links which she ‘intended or was reckless as to whether members of the public would be directly or indirectly encouraged or otherwise induced by the statement to commit, prepare or instigate acts of terrorism or Convention offences.’
