Penetration of the increasingly widespread use of the internet in society has inspired extremists to use cyberspace as a new arena for jihad. It is in this context that NU and Muhammadiyah as the largest Islamic organizations in Indonesia are trying to fill the void as well as take a role in digital literacy culture by forming a cyber team as a base for resistance to narratives produced by radicalism accounts. This research is classified as a type of qualitative research with a digital content analysis approach. Researchers will collect narratives produced by NU and Muhammadiyah accounts on social media in countering cyber-radicalism in Indonesia. The East Java NU cyber team provides media that plays a role in influencing the perspective of media users to enter on the big theme set by the East Java Cyber Muhammadiyah and NU cyber teams which always spread the values of Ahlussunnah Wal Jamaah so that the two organizations can provide an understanding of ahlussunnah wal jamaan with an elegant presentation and far from extreme thinking.
