A Worldwide Group of hackers ‘Anonymous’ has taken down more than 1000 (Still increasing) Twitter accounts of ISIS Group.

Last month Anonymous warned ISIS in a YouTube video that they would track down their websites and social media networks and take them down (Its campaign against ISIS was started by the bloody attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in January, in which 12 people were murdered.). And now, Anonymous appears to be delivering on its promise to take down terrorist group ISIS on the Internet. They posted a new video on Friday,  saying “You will be treated like a virus, and we are the cure. We own the Internet.”

“We, Anonymous around the world, have decided to declare war on you the terrorists.”

Anonymous listed nearly 800 Twitter accounts on pastebin, Also 12 Facebook pages and over 50 email addresses that it said were attacked because of their suspected ties to ISIS. According To CNNMoney, They have checked the all accounts mentioned by Anonymous Group were either suspended or deleted from twitter. Though a few accounts still seems to be running.
