    Islamic State linked Twitter sites have been suspended after Internet vigilante group Anonymous posted a list of them online.

    Around 900 IS related Twitter links have been revealed by hackers from the activists group who has pledged to wage cyber warfare on the terrorists. 

    Anonymous has promised its "bigger operating ever" to take down IS militants following the terrorist atrocities in Paris. A member wearing the group’s mask broadcast a message on YouTube saying "Anonymous from all over the world will hunt you down".

    It’s since been revealed that more than 900 social media sites sympathizing with the terrorist organization have been suspended with a warning message posted saying "expect us!" above the list of names.

    In a recent tweet, the group affirmed its intentions.

    Anonymous says it wants to "unite humanity" to help destroy IS after the attack in Paris which killed 129 people on Friday 13 November.
