The hacktivist collective known as Anonymous -- which yesterday archly noted that it had predicted the technical difficulties experienced at the New York Stock Exchange -- wrote two similarly unsubtle tweets last night:

[embedtweet id="618964386066075648"]

This time, the world immediately took notice:

[embedtweet id="618965528477106176"]

[embedtweet id="618964497785618432"]

[embedtweet id="618971055063986176"]

As of 11 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, however, the NYSE is still endlessly wheeling the world's money around.
