The Anonymous hacking collective has reportedly taken down over 5,500 Twitter accounts purported to belong to Islamic State members following their declaration of "total war" on the terrorist group after the Paris attacks.

The announcement comes less than 24 hours after hacktivist group warned of a coordinated and targeted attack against the Islamic State in the wake of the deadly wave of terror attacks across Paris.

Anonymous spokesman Alex Poucher told RT:

Our capability to take down ISIS is a direct result of our collective's sophisticated hackers, data miners, and spies that we have all around the world. We have people very, very close to ISIS on the ground, which makes gathering intel about ISIS and related activities very easy for us.

Poucher went on to say that the groups hacking acumen "might be better than any world government's tools to combat ISIS online," adding that although ISIS has its own hacking core, the terrorist group "does not have hackers like we have hackers."

The hacking collective vowed to "unite humanity," warning the terrorist group to "expect massive cyber-attacks."

"Anonymous from all over the world will hunt you down," the masked Anon spokesman in the video said. "You should know that we will find you and we will not let you go."

ISIS responded to Anonymous' video on Monday, calling the hacktivist group "idiots" and offering technical guidance to ISIS supporters in an effort to protect against Anonymous cyber-attacks.

In spite of the ISIS insults aimed at Anonymous, judging by the initial results, it seems the Islamic State is impotent to stop the hacktivist group from decimating the terror group's social media outreach and recruitment efforts.
