ISIS tastes the rainbow as Twitter Accounts are hacked


A large number of Twitter accounts belonging to the Islamic State militant
group (ISIS) were hijacked some days ago and replaced with gay pride
messages and links to gay pornography.



A hacker affiliated with Anonymous, WauchulaGhost, first began
hijacking the pro-ISIS Twitter accounts months before. In that time,
he — in addition to hackers Ebony and Yeti — have taken control of
over 200 Twitter accounts belonging to ISIS supporters. Many of
these, however, have since been removed by Twitter as part of its
on-going mission to remove propaganda accounts.




Following the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando , the hackers used the hijacked accounts to replace militant
propaganda messages and imagery with rainbow flags, pro-LGBT
messages and links to same-sex pornography. They want to be
clear, however, they weren’t using graphic porn and the intent isn’t
to offend Muslims. Instead, their “actions are directed at Jihadist
extremists.”



WauchulaGhost told Newsweek:
“I did it for the lives lost in Orlando. Daesh [ISIS] have been
spreading and praising the attack, so I thought I would defend
those that were lost. The taking of innocent lives will not be
tolerated.”
While the hijacked accounts are good for a laugh, this Redditor
might have a better idea:
