Anonymous has made previous announcements that it would fight ISIS online, one place where ISIS heavily recruits. I believe it made quite a dent over the last few days. The details were given from it's @opparisofficial account.


He added that the collective has built tools that “might be better than any world government's tools to combat ISIS online.”


This particular help, I personally welcome.

BFD. These clowns have lost all credibility they claim there doing this and that but what have they really done other then make empty threats?

Maybe a catchy hash tag will stop these terrorists.

Considering how much time ISIL spends spreading propaganda on the Internet ANON can and will be very effective in hurting them.

What ever happened to that ANON representative we had here on ATS? I'd like to hear more about this from the inner circle.

Interesting. I am not sure it is all good. Shutting down the account makes it impossible to track the account holder in real time or to send undercover agents in that would use such accounts to gain intel. However it would slow down recruitment.

Twitter should be ashamed of itself for not doing the grunt work here. It's embarrassing.

I'm not very knowledgable on these kinds of things, but why couldn't Twitter have done this themselves?

Don't they ban people all the time?

Agreed, anonymous seem to be doing a better job at cleaning up twitter than twitters own staff.

Inanemous!

Exactly my sentiment. They are more a media invented hyped fabrication than any real out there group. I think they are being used as certain dramatic personae in this theatrical performance before our eyes.

I don't want unaccountable digital vandals doing ANYTHING in my name.

Do you really think that? Do you think that people join up via Twitter? is that the shallow recruitment resource for people committed enough to a cause to blow themselves up?

I don't think so.

This, they really did though.

No one is going to track 5k people or 5k accounts, with how slowly our intelligence works. For the moment, it is a good slowdown.

It takes us years and wildly inaccurate drone strikes to find just one major ISIS player.

The details are in the articles. You could always search Isis/Isil/IS twitter accounts on twitter.

At most all anonymous is doing is slowing them down temporarily and to quote Mr. Universe "You can't stop the signal".

They do. They use twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp, a large variety of social media. Twitter has become the frontrunner in this. To a smaller extent, they use chats on game consoles.

Slowing them down and who can measure for how long? They have organized a massive amount of resources to accomplish this. My only natural reaction is to applaud the effort.

They are real. They don;t do it for you personally.Do you leave MSM. social media or ATS or other large 'conspiracy sites' ? If you look for them they can be found.

I sort of remember posts from someone who said they were from Anon. I hoped it was real, but I doubt it now.

It is a good question why twitter doesn't do this often enough. I suppose there is no way to prove what someone tweets is truth. The government can always ask twitter for account details. Again, our government seems to be not very good at this. They ask for hundreds of thousands of email. google, etc, details but have no successful track record in stopping any attack.
