Anonymous hacks Anders Behring Breivik’s Twitter account

Published On August 2, 2011 | By Matt Gratz | Anonymous

The hacker collective Anonymous has hijacked the Twitter account belonging to Anders Behring Breivik, the man behind the attacks last month in Norway.

The disparaging tweets began Sunday afternoon. They at first were made to look like Breivik himself sent them from prison, but the hackers eventually identified themselves as being part of the loosely affiliated hacker collective.

“This Twitter account has been seized by #NORIA. @AnonymousNorway,” read a tweet.

“We want Anders to be forgotten. Labels like ‘monster’ or ‘maniac’ won’t do either,” read another tweet.

“Media should call him pathetic; a nothing. #Forgethim.”

Another tweet rapidly followed promising the account would be closed. However, Breivik’s page on Twitter, which was created several days ahead of the attack, is still accessible. However, all the tweets have been deleted from the profile. The only tweet that remained visible was a quotation by philosopher John Stuart Mill:  
“One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100,000 who have only interests.”

Anonymous has recently launched a campaign called “Operation UnManifest” aimed at destroying Breivik’s racist 1,500 page manifesto.

Operation UnManifest:

As Anders Behring Breivik wants to use the cruel action of killing over 90 young people to promote his 1516-page manifesto, also with the help of the internet, Anonymous suggests following action:

1. Find the Manifest of Anders Behring Breivik : 2083 – A European Declaration of Independence
2. Change it, add stupid stuff, remove parts, shoop his picture, do what you like to…..
3. Republish it everywhere and up vote releases from other peoples, declare that the faked ones are original
4. Let Anders become a joke, such that nobody will take him serious anymore
5. Spread this message around the internet and real life, translate it
6. Have a moment for the victims of his cruel attacks

We all are anonymous,
We all are Legion,
We all do not forgive murder,
We all do not forget the victims.
