Guess Who Is Taking Down ISIS Social Media Accounts (SPOILER: It Isn’t Obama!)

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.


Is this hacker group doing a better job than the United States of taking action against ISIS? Comment below!
