Hackers Attack Twitter Account of Norwegian Terrorist Anders Behring Breivik

A hacker or hackers who claimed to be affiliated with hacking group Anonymous Norway focused their attention on the Twitter account of Anders Behring Breivik, who admitted to carrying out the terrorist attacks in Norway July 22 that claimed 77 lives.

The Twitter account still exists, although all tweets have been deleted, but Gawker was able to secure the screen grab below before the deletions.

As you can see from Gawker’s screen grab, the tweets began with jokes about Breivik being raped in prison, before calling him a “sick disgusting f___,” and urging readers to “Forget Anders.”

According to Gawker, all of this activity happened at around 3:30 p.m. ET Sunday.
