One Step Closer to Big Brother [Feb. 12th, 2012|08:41 am]

An electronic privacy group has a word of warning: watch what you tweet. Oh, and keep a close eye on your Facebook wall. Why? Well, the Department of Homeland Security might soon be watching–monitoring social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. What are they looking for? Not necessarily signs that you might be involved in terrorism. Instead, they're reportedly interested in information that "reflects adversely" on DHS itself.

Social media: the best tool for governments to spy on their own people, ever. Starting with our own.

Remember when we thought electing Barack Obama would mean taking a step back from the brink of Nineteen Eighty-Four-style fascism? How naive we were then.
