Anonymous, a group of activist hackers, have taken credit for striking down over 800 Twitter accounts and numerous Facebook accounts, recruitment websites and email addresses associated with ISIS.
The Mirror reports:
The militant Islamist organization has a huge social media presence, with accounts on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.
Through Operation ISIS – #OpISIS – the decentralized hacking group has been strategically targeting this online presence.
Many people are wondering why a decentralized “hacktivist” group is doing more to take down ISIS’s social media presence than the Obama Administration.
So Anonymous is doing more than the US government. LOL. Obama should be taking notes. http://t.co/qhM1oK5WCV
