Twitter temporarily taken down by 'Iranian Cyber Army' A group calling themselves the Iranian Cyber Army temporarily took down the microblogging service Twitter yesterday, re-routing users from the site to their own page.
That page had a picture of a green flag followed by the words: "This site has been hacked by the Iranian Cyber Army."

It is still unclear whether the group has any actual ties to Iran, and how serious the breach was.

Twitter admitted that "its Domain Name Systems' records were temporarily compromised but have now been fixed. The site says it will update with more details once we've investigated more fully."

Iranian Cyber Army

Keep up the rhetoric guys, whats the next line "They can deploy WMD's in 45 minuets", haven't i heard this bull before.

& there is Obama hiding the fact that Israel has nuclear weapons.

EXCLUSIVE: Obama agrees to keep Israel's nukes secret

President Obama has reaffirmed a 4-decade-old secret understanding that has allowed Israel to keep a nuclear arsenal without opening it to international inspections, three officials familiar with the understanding said.

The officials, who spoke on the condition that they not be named because they were discussing private conversations, said Mr. Obama pledged to maintain the agreement when he first hosted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House in May.

Under the understanding, the U.S. has not pressured Israel to disclose its nuclear weapons or to sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which could require Israel to give up its estimated several hundred nuclear bombs.

It's all a scam , that's the dirty work again forcing world to "accept" invasion of iran , as always it has been in human history , battles , wars , it's all deja vu again ... they are best known for using strategies like stealth , wealth(manipulation/exploit of monetary system), politics corruption , mass media propaganda , and faking(using their assets to fuel the opposite made-up faction , examples are , terrorists , terror groups , organized crimes , ... they , the elite of the 1st world do this mess , they send missionaries , they make traps so people fall for it so easily , .... wonder why the heck is iranian and army , like it's an official. Nobody would write in like THAT obvious manner of it's intention , the hack intention was clearly to show "WHO" (false) hacked , most of hackers write their nick or something , but this is just suspicious , no official thing would go an write it self name on , apparently it is official , they made it for purpose, to make you think that Iran is now a serious threat ALSO on the net , it's all BS, like it was with WMDs and Iraq being a "threat" , and bla bla bla. Don't buy this crap , just get the hell out of EU an USA , maybe you'll understand what am I talking about if you would be still there some years ahead. I am in EU and I don't like this crap.

I agree. Boo-F***-Hoo. I don't see the point of Twitter.

Now if the ICA hacked TPB, Demonoid or AfterDawn, THEN it would be WWIII.

The situation in Iran is dire right now. But screw em...we have our own massive governmental problems to deal with. Let them have their revolution on their own; if we help we just become the new enemy while the old tyrants are seen as the just party.
