On Saturday, hackers hijacked North Korea's official Twitter account and YouTube channel to upbraid the country's leadership. Saturday was the birthday of current leader Kim Jong-il's son and heir apparent, Kim Jong-un.
A video that appeared on the hermit kingdom's YouTube page showed Jong-un driving a sports car over starving women and children, killing them with a splat of blood. On its Twitter account, @uriminzok, tweets appeared indicting the country's leadership.
The country only opened its Twitter account in August, following the debut of its YouTube channel by a month.
Yonhap News described some of the tweets.
"The four most recent feeds posted in the morning accused the Kims of exploiting their people to enjoy sumptuous lives, and develop nuclear arms and missiles. One tweet called for an uprising to slay the Kims 'with a sword.'"
'Let's create a new world by rooting out our people's sworn enemy Kim Jong-il and his son Kim Jong-un!' one tweet read. Another sought to convince readers that the removal of the dynasty would lead North Koreans to live 'as happily as South Koreans.'"
South Korean media theorized that the hackers were South Koreans.
