Many people believe in ‘jinn’ (spirits), but is it possible that one of those spirits sets up an account on Twitter and says he is a “real and peaceful jinn” who lives in Saudi Arabia and want to know humans.
The Saudi Arabic language daily Ajel published what it described as a copy of a Twitter account whose holder is claiming to be a Jinn.
The account is titled “I am a real Jinn” and says:”To all humans… I am the first Jinn to use Twitter… some might think that I am pretending and that I am human… actually, I am a real Jinn and you will see wonders in the future on my Twitter account.”
The message goes on: “I am a real Jinn who likes to be a brother to all humans. I am peaceful and do not like to hurt anyone. I like to mingle with humans and know their behavior. I live in a deserted house in Saudi Arabia.”
The paper said one reader tried to contact that account by using a fake name but quoted the reader as saying he was quickly identified by that account user.
“He mentioned my real full name and where I live, including the name of the neighbourhood and the city. I was shocked and instantly uttered prayers.”
