The Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) claimed to hacked into Twitter, Huffington Post and NY Times’ registry accounts, contact details, and more especially, DNS records. Modifying Domain Name Server (DNS) records of a domain will allow #SEA to redirect visitors to any site of their desire.

What is Twitter’s stance on their claim? Twitter published a status about this issue on Tuesday 27th August, 2013. In which they only mentioned twimg service.

By 22:29 UTC, the original domain record for was restored. No Twitter user information was affected by this incident.

While Syrian Electronic Army tweeted that they have hacked Twitter:
