A recruiting push by Islamic State militants via thousands of Twitter accounts and other social media postings remains one of the biggest threats facing the United States, a high-level US military official said on Wednesday.

Admiral Bill Gortney, commander of US Northern Command and the North American Aerospace Defense Command, said he was particularly concerned about radicalized youth in the United States who were "in receive mode" but not communicating back.

US authorities could potentially track recruits who communicate with Islamic State recruiters, but it was tougher to identify potential recruits, such as the shooter who killed five servicemen in Tennessee in July, Gortney told an event hosted by the Atlantic Council think-tank.
