Hackers of the Rustle League group have hijacked Anon_CentralNF, an Anonymous Operations Twitter account that has over 160,000 followers.

The account was hacked around 5 hours ago and it's still controlled by Rustle League, a collective which seems to be anti-Anonymous.

Some members of the Anonymous movement appear to be planning to retaliate, but it remains to be seen if anything materializes.

We’ve seen a lot of high-profile Twitter account getting hacked over the past period. The latest victims are Burger King, Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, and Jeep.

Hacking Twitter accounts has become so “cool,” that MTV has even “hacked” its own account to promote its sister network BET.

In response to the numerous account compromises, Twitter representatives have issued a “friendly reminder about password security” in which they advise users to follow four important rules to make sure their accounts aren’t hacked.
