Anonymous crowdsourcing? Using twitter account to get loadsamoeny for website?

The hacker collective Anonymous seem to be crowdsourcing the costs of building a new, offical-looking home on the internet for themselves.

The group haven’t had an official website till now, but that looks likely to change.

Apparantly, the @YourAnonNews twitter account, which has been heavy linked with the group, has succeeded in raising over $55,000 through a crowdsourcing campaign on the Indiegogo website.

The money is to be used to create a website that aims:

“to collect breaking reports and blog postings from the best independent reporters online. We’ll provide feeds for citizen journalists who livestream events as they are taking place, instead of the 10-second sound bites provided by the corporate media.”
