Lulzsec Publishes Statement For 1000th Tweet

Lulz Security, the entity which calls itself "those evil bastards from Twitter", has published an interesting statement as it reached its 1000th tweet on the microblogging website.

The group mentioned its achievements over the last few weeks which included the hacking of organisations like PBS, Sony, the FBI, the CIA, a number of online gaming servers, porn websites etc.

It also issued a veiled warning about future breaches saying that like other hackers, they haven't announced everything that they hacked and claimed that they are sitting on a database containing details of 200,000 Brink users (possibly in reference to the first shooter video game released last month by Splash Damage).

Releasing everything, Lulzsec says, may cause havoc and chaos, with the author of the statement declaring that this is 2011, the so-called Lulz Lizard era, where entertainment at the expense of others is what must be craved for.

"It's appealing and unique, there are no two account hijackings that are the same", the statement continues, adding "that's all there is to it".

They also predict their own demise, saying that users will forget them in three months time when a new scandal emerges, something that reminds us how distant the memories of Julian Assange, Wikileaks and Anonymous now feel. The complete statement can be read here (opens in new tab).
