Some people argue that Anonymous do more hyping than hacking these days, but when it comes to ISIS they’ve actually delivered — taking down over 5,000 ISIS-related social media accounts and trolling the shit out of them every chance they get.

Seems like ISIS have been hitting the ‘Report’ button hard though because one Anonymous member is claiming that Twitter is shutting down Anonymous accounts for harassing them.
Wauchula Ghost says his own account was closed without warning:
I never received an email from Twitter.
You do realise if we all stopped reporting terrorist accounts and graphic images, Twitter would be flooded with terrorists.

Anonymous released a video last year which announced:
The terrorists that are calling themselves Islamic State, Isis, are not Muslims. Isis, we will hunt you, take down your sites, accounts, emails, and expose you from now on.
No safe place for you online. You will be treated like a virus, and we are the cure.
So the question is – what’s Twitter playing at? It’s bad enough they allow these ISIS accounts to operate, now they want to shut down the people actually trying to do something about it? At the same time it’s a bit shocking that anyone’s capable of banning Anonymous from anything in the first place. What happened? I thought you guys ran the Internet (not taking the piss, just saying).
P.S. Shut down Jaden Smith’s account too while you’re at it.
