The #FarrakhanTwitterArmy or #FTA, is the social media warfare against what the mainstream media has to say, or doesn’t say, about the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation Of Islam. The Farrakhan Twitter Army consists of researchers and fact checkers who confirm, deny, and defend statements made about Minister Farrakhan and the NOI. The spreading of the Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad is called among the ranks of the FTA, Truth Trafficking. Though it is known as the Farrakhan Twitter Army, there are FTA soldiers on every social media site.
Originally The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was known as the Commander-in-Tweet, but he gave that title back to Brother Jesse Muhammad. Bro. Jesse Muhammad is the social media strategist for the Honorable Minister Farrakhan and the Nation Of Islam. He is also an award-winning journalist and blogger, the founder of Brother Jesse Blog and a touring speaker. When we asked Brother Jesse, affectionately known as Uncle Jesse to youth of the Nation of Islam, how the FTA came to be this is what he said.
