(Newser) – Anders Behring Breivik’s Twitter account has been hacked, and hacker group Anonymous is taking credit for it, the Village Voice reports: “This Twitter account has been seized by #NORIA. @AnonymousNorway,” one tweet read. The account has since been wiped clean of tweets. Among the others that had appeared: "I dropped the soap again, FML." "We want Anders to be forgotten. Labels like 'monster' or 'maniac' won’t do either. Media should call him pathetic; a nothing."

Another tweet had noted that the account "will be deleted soon." Anonymous has been running a campaign to destroy the 1,500-page manifesto Brevik wrote before his twin attacks, replacing online versions of it with an edited take that contains "stupid stuff." "Let Anders become a joke, such that nobody will take him serious anymore," suggests "Operation UnManifesto." Meanwhile, reports are emerging that Breivik had plastic surgery to get his Aryan look, notes the Star. "You do not have that Aryan look naturally in Norway," an intelligence official says.
