The disparaging tweets began Sunday afternoon. They at first were made to look like Breivik himself sent them from prison, but the hackers eventually identified themselves as being part of the loosely affiliated hacker collective.
“This Twitter account has been seized by #NORIA. @AnonymousNorway,” read a tweet.
“We want Anders to be forgotten. Labels like ‘monster’ or ‘maniac’ won’t do either,” read another tweet. “Media should call him pathetic; a nothing. #Forgethim.”
Shortly after, a tweet said the account would be shut down. As of 8 p.m. ET, the account — which was created just days before the attacks — still exists, but all sent tweets appear to have been deleted. The only tweet that was visible previously, and presumably sent by Breivik, was a quote from philosopher John Stuart Mill: “One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100 000 who have only interests.” (Breivik also had a Facebook account, but that disappeared shortly after the attacks in which Breivik killed more than 90 people.)
Anonymous, a group that sometimes undertakes protests and acts of vengeance through hacktivism, announced a campaign last week against Breivik. A Pastebin document titled “Operation UnManifest” instructed people to find and re-write Breivik’s manifesto.
