Cops hack 9,000 porno Twitter accounts in Saudi

Arrested many owners

Saudi Arabia’s feared religious police smashed nearly 9,000 Twitter porno accounts and arrested many of their owners within a crackdown against vice in the conservative Gulf kingdom, newspapers reported on Tuesday.

The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice said it joined hands with some “ethical hackers” to locate those accounts and identify their owners.

“The Commission members have succeeded in hacking Twitter porno accounts, shutting them and arresting some of their owners over the past period,” a Commission spokesman said without specify that period.

He said raids by Commission members also resulted in the arrest of many Saudis and expatriates involved in booze parties, vice and gambling.
