“Several top Twitter accounts, including those of a German football club, a French ministry and BBC North America, were defaced Wednesday by pro-Turkish hackers with a message slamming ‘Nazi Germany’ and ‘Nazi Holland.’ … The message also featured a swastika and was followed by a video showing extracts of speeches by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Twitter confirmed the attack. … The cyberattack comes after Turkish politicians were last week banned by The Netherlands and several German towns from holding rallies to woo expatriate support for an April 16 constitutional referendum on boosting Erdogan’s powers.” (03/15/17)
