FILE - This Feb. 21, 2013 file photo shows Malian soldiers, working with French forces, battling radical Islamic rebels in Gao, Mali. Al-Qaida's North African arm is trying something new to stay relevant: Twitter. Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM, is trying to move the battleground elsewhere, seeking to tap into social grievances and champion mainstream causes such as unemployment, all in bid to reverse decline and win new followers, appealing to widespread concerns, such as the repression and a sense of injustice that galvanized the Arab Spring revolts.
