    The twitter feed of the US Central Command was taken over by ISIS today.

    'The Twitter account for U.S. Central Command was apparently hacked on Monday, with pro-ISIS messages plastering the account's profile.

    The first message was posted at 12:29 p.m. ET, with the words "AMERICAN SOLDIERS, WE ARE COMING, WATCH YOUR BACK. ISIS." and the hashtag "#CyberCaliphate."

    The profile's image was replaced with a photo that includes the text "i love you isis." Just before 1 p.m. ET profile and banner images were reverted to their default.'...

    This likely happened because hactivist group Anonymous announced several days ago they are going to go after ISIS. So this could be a message from ISIS to show Anonymous how sophisticated there own hacking skills are.
