Following a series of terrorist attacks on Sunday and Monday in Surabaya, East Java, the Jakarta Police have called on the public to report any suspicious social media accounts to the National Police’s official Twitter account, @DivHumas_Polri

The Jakarta Police’s public relations department issued a public call on Monday through its official Twitter handle, @HumasMetroJaya, for people to immediately report any Twitter accounts that supported radicalism, terrorism or an Islamist caliphate by sending a direct message (DM) to the Jakarta Police or the National Police's Twitter account.
