Newsweek is the latest major publication to fall victim to a Twitter hack. It appears that a group calling itself Cyber Caliphate took over the magazine’s account around 11am EST, and began tweeting out threats, supposed leaked documents, and general propaganda relating to Islamic terrorism.
“#CyberCaliphate Bloody Valentine’s Day #MichelleObama! We’re watching you, you girls, and your husband,” read one tweet.

The hackers also published a purported organizational chart from the DCITA, or the Defense Cyber Investigations Training Academy.
Twitter shut this one down pretty fast, and the tweets have since been deleted. But Newsweek has yet to fully restore the page:
