Here's how Anonymous helped to Takes Down over 5,500 ISIS Accounts After ISIS Calls Them "Idiots". The latest in the Anonymous...
Q: What role can Anonymous play in a war with ISIS?ISIS is a bit of a shadow organization. You don't see them until they appear. So is Anonymous. They both have the same kind of view of the world. They are very hard to find, very hard to see, very hard to hit. In this case, Anonymous has an advantage. They are very good at tracking down electronic information and using it to their benefit.
Q: Anonymous has already made claims of success in their efforts against ISIS. Do you believe them?I believe them. The numbers I have heard are about 5,500 Twitter accounts and some other websites. Anonymous is looking for language in Twitter postings that reflects a sympathetic eye towards ISIS. They report those accounts and the social media organizations delete them as required. If you get enough people looking and reading, you're going to find them pretty easily. This interferes with the way ISIS likes to promote itself and recruit.
ISIS needs people to follow their Twitter accounts before it becomes powerful. People who are sympathetic to their world view will develop a relationship with them. If Anonymous keeps disrupting these accounts, ISIS will have difficulty building a following. They will have more difficulty getting their message out.
