Following the hack of the MBC Arabic channel’s Twitter account by an ISIS supporter on January 13, 2015, mujahideen and other ISIS supporters on Twitter praised the hacker and quickly spread the news. Among the most proactive twitter accounts were @Soldier_Allah_X and @terrorist0011. Some tweets refer to the hacker as an ISIS supporter, and others state that the account was “hacked by ISIS.” Therefore, it is unclear how involved ISIS actually was in the act.
@terrorist0011: “Allahu Akbar a supporter of #Islamic_State hacks the account of MBC this week. Spread.”
@terrorist0011: “[All tweets repeat the same phrase: ] Allahu Akbar a supporter of #Islamic_State hacks the account of MBC this week… spread [with various hashtags on each tweet to spread news].”
@terrorist0011: [More tweets with the same phrase and different hashtags]
@apokerooo: “Allahu Akbar a supporter of #Islamic_State hacks the account of MBC this week… spread.”
