In general using public information and standard cyber security practices.

You are using a known state sponsored IP range to perform the attack. People are going to know who it was. First question? Why do you want other countries to know you did this?

Twitter supposedly has state of the art security due to a hack a couple of years ago. It's been touted in cyber security seminars.

If you wanted to let your enemies know of your capabilities to deter them from harming you. You need to publically show them those capabilities. A don't **** with us statement. But, you didn't really harm your enemy.

By choosing a non military or essential part of the infrastruture a statement can be made without also a tremendous retribution from the cyber arm of the military in the territory that you invaded.

This is subtle genius. As opposed to the stupid ass lumbering hacks on the banks from Iran.

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
