In the battle against ISIS, gathering reliable intelligence can be tricky. Unless Mohammed Daniel, who was previously known as Mark John Taylor, is your source. Then you have only to look on his “Kiwi Jihadi” Twitter feed to find where the jihadist from New Zealand is located.

Here's another pic of Mohammed Daniel, aka Mark John Taylor:

Twitter has a geo-tagging feature that you need to turn off - if you don't want your location advertised when you tweet. Apparently, the “Kiwi Jihadist” forgot all about this, for 45 tweets. Once he realized this serious mistake, he quickly deleted the applicable tweets.

But not before intelligence firm iBRABO tracked him.

What happens next? No drone strikes have been mentioned.

iBRABO says that thanks to his lazy social media posts, it was able to pinpoint a house in the Syrian town of Al Tabqah where Daniel was believed to be staying.

“His statements and Twitter missteps have solidified his involvement with ISIS and will provide the evidence should he ever try to return to New Zealand,” [ iBRABO's Jeff] Weyers said.

The company posted the story on its blog and has sent out tweets about it, as well. With the evidence collected by the firm, if the ISIS fighter were ever to attempt to return to New Zealand he would most likely be arrested and prosecuted.
