Twitter Suspends ‘The RedHack’ on Request of Turkish Gov

The @TheRedHack account has been inaccessible for less than an hour at the time of press . When you try to access it, a prompt appears saying, “Sorry, that user is suspended.”


Over the weekend, RedHack hijacked the account of Izzet Artunç, the head of Mechanical and Chemical Industry Corporation. The action was a sign of protest against the AKP (the Justice and Development Party) which is the current ruling party within Turkey.

The hacktivists accuse the government of coordinating work with Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, including through selling weapons, letting others transport them and transforming the country into a “gate to Syria” for radical Islamists.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
