Turkish hackers to take blame for pro-protest tweets
Issued on: Modified:
A Turkish hacker network has offered to act as a scapegoat to Twitter users who are targeted by the authorities for supporting or promoting the ongoing nationwide protests. The RedHack group said they would claim to have hacked users’ accounts.
Turkish hacker network RedHack gave tips to protesters to avoid being charged with “Sharing provocative messages” on social media, as 29 people were detained for their tweets relating to the Taksim Gezi Park protests on June 5.
If these tips failed to work, “Users can tell the police that our account was hacked by Redhack, we would take the blame with pleasure,” the group said via Twitter.
