The 21-year-old heartthrob has almost 74 million Twitter followers, which seems to be the easiest way to reach masses world-wide.

The video came after a warning from Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull this week on improvement of online campaigns against Islamic State.

The 15-minute video, which was professionally produced, includes filming of the execution of four men, who are shot in the back of the head at close range as they kneel on the ground with their hands bound.

Footage of various attacks are also shown, as are appeals for new recruits.
