It’s On: KKK Twitter-Hacks Anonymous, Takes Back Operation KKK

The KKK scored a rare victory over Anonymous, and may as well enjoy gloating while they can. On Sunday, they somehow managed to take back their @Operation_KKK Twitter account.

But can it make up for all the KKK members exposed by Anonymous’ #HoodsOff campaign? Probably not.

#HoodsON @Operation_KKK Under Klan control as of 23 NOV 2014 15:45:47. You should've expected us.

Of course the KKK couldn’t resist bragging about their exploit.

 #HoodsON @Operation_KKK  ·  2h 2 hours ago You would think Anonymous would have picked a harder password to crack #HoodsOn

Nor are KKK haters above twisting the knife and tossing in a random insult for good measure.

#HoodsON ‏@Operation_KKK Based on the direct messages sent from and to this account, we can confirm that this account was run by a kid in his mom's basement #HoodsOn

Alas, the folks at Anonymous had to concede defeat… at least for now.

Anonymous ‏@YourAnonNews  1h1 hour ago Klan regains control of @Operation_KKK (temporarily). Let the games continue. GO GO GO! #HoodsOff #OpKKK

But Anonymous’ anti-KKK supporters remain undaunted. Valkyrie77 warns them to watch out for undercover operatives in camo sheets.

Valkyrie77 ‏@Valkyrie_77  51m51 minutes ago @YourAnonNews @Operation_KKK They're retaliating by sending in undercover operatives. They'll be wearing camo-sheets.

While another scorns KKK “hillbillies” for only being able to score one win.

FromtheMorgue ‏@From_the_Morgue  2h2 hours ago So the hillbillies found a techy in their ranks. What's that make the score,  3,000-1??? #OpKKK #HoodsOff

The folks at Operation Ferguson deny the KKK could have possibly done this without outside assistance. On the one hand, it doesn’t pay to underestimate your enemy. On the other hand, we doubt Anonymous will let this happen again.

Operation Ferguson ‏@OpFerguson  34m34 minutes ago I think it likely they hired outside assistance with this. Black Hat mercenaries are a dime a dozen. | @stabier @Operation_KKK

And lest we forget why Anonymous declared war on the KKK, here’s a tweet from one of many Ferguson protesters they’ve harassed with their disgusting, racist bulls*t.

@anony00008 Got this from KKK asshole → @Rebelknightskkk he's trolling my account @OpFerguson

But really, who cares about Anonymous losing one KKK account they stole when Anonymous still has control of the KKK’s main Twitter account ?

Raise your hand if you’re having trouble logging into your Twitter account!

Anonymous still has all these KKK members’ phone numbers…

Ku Klux Klan @KuKluxKlanUSA  ·  Nov 21 It would be in the KKK's best interest if they stayed away from the protests in Ferguson #OpKKK #HoodsOff

And the un-hooding continues, as @Anomaly100 reminds us.

Anomaly ‏@Anomaly100  24h24 hours ago Raise your hand if you peed yourself after #OpKKK de-hooded you. #HoodsOff

Despite this minor defeat, the folks from Anonymous shared an inspiring message and video.
