Israel Shakes Up the Information War

Pajamas Media reported Bypassing the mainstream media, Israel gets its message out through Twitter and YouTube.

Monday afternoon saw the Israeli consulate in New York hold a press conference on Twitter on their own “hashtag” stream for anyone to read and listen to. It’s called simply AskIsrael. What was more impressive is that they were taking questions for those “listening in.”....

At the same time the Israeli Defense Forces launched its own channel on YouTube to display their view of events on the ground.

And I understand they may be setting up their own YouTube-like server to counter the Jihadis who are using YouTube's feature to delete videos they find offensive.
