article imageNorth Korea's Twitter account hijacked

By Owen Weldon     Apr 4, 2013 in World
The group Anonymous allegedly hacked into North Korea's Twitter account, amid tension between North Korea and The United States.
According to Yahoo, hackers apparently got into at least two of North Korea's government-run websites on Thursday.
The country's Uriminzokkiri Twitter and Flickr accounts stopped sending out content that is considered typical content that is posted by officials in Pyongyang, such as pictures of Kim Jong Un meeting with military officials.
According to CNET, the country's Twitter feed now shows numerous Tweets poking fun at Jong-Un. One linked photos shows the leader in a not so flattering light and also criticizes him for being "a threat to to world peace." North Korea's Flickr account also displays an image, as well as the words "We Are Anonymous."
According to BBC, Anonymous claims that they accessed around 15,000 usernames and passwords from the database of a university.
Anonymous also posted online that citizens of North Korea should rise up and start on a journey towards freedom, peace and democracy.
