The IS has had a strong presence online, posting gruesome videos, threats and recruiting militants and wives
The Anonymous hacker group, which has allegedly hacked numerous sites, accounts and e-mails belonging to IS supporters, have released a list composed of 9.200 Twitter accounts, in an attempt to get Twitter to close them.
The full list can be consulted here: http://xrsone.com/isis.htm.
It is not the first time when something like this is happening. A lot of accounts have been previously banned. On the 2nd of March, the co-founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, along with other of his employees, were threatened by ISIS for blocking their accounts.
You started this failed war. We told you from the beginning it’s not your war, but you didn’t get it and kept closing our accounts on Twitter, but we always come back. When our lions [brave men] come and take your breath, you will never come back to life
The IS has had a strong presence online, posting gruesome videos, threats and recruiting militants and wives. Due to this and the lack of interest shown by the U.S. government, ‘vigilantes’ like the Anonymous group have taken the matter into their own hands.
