This is what the network of followers of extreme Somalian group Al-Shabaab looks like on Twitter. Now, you know.
 ​Filtering Al-Shabaab's network down by the most connect Twitter accounts, we can see the the core of this extremist network is just comprised of journalists and Kenya military officials. So, it's really just a bit of an echo chamber not a threatening online network of terrorists.
 ​The data you use for social network analysis can also be run through a statistical package like STATA. He we have the spread of followers for five terrorist accounts on Twitter. 
 ​I was a member of Keble College while at the University of Oxford working on my Masters degree and dissertation using social network analysis.
