The tit-for-tat nature of the exchanges has raised eyebrows among

The tit-for-tat nature of the exchanges has raised eyebrows among some media analysts who wonder what NATO has to gain from engaging with the Taliban via Twitter.
Lotfullah Najafizada, head of current affairs at TOLOTV, one of Afghanistan's biggest TV networks, said: "I saw some of them [Thursday morning] and to be honest they were so funny and I was wondering why ISAF should reply."
"ISAF should not do such things as the Taliban may not consider all ethics of communications so it's good for ISAF to stay out of it and not to engage in such communications. It would be counter-productive for ISAF."
But it's not just about sniping. ISAF often uses Twitter to swiftly respond to what it sees as false claims by the Taliban about insurgent operational successes.
ISAF: "@ABalkhi Nope again. No ISAF helo shot down last night. Nice try".
ISAF: "@Pressistan Did. Not. Happen. @ABalkhi is truly the gift that keeps on giving."
