It was recently reported that during the 2010 Winter Olympics the US Department of Homeland Security will be monitoring Twitter and other social networking websites. Allegedly they are looking for terrorist related posts and comments. It seems logical that the Olympics or any gathering of that size would be a significant target for terrorist activity. It also seems logical that these types of sites could hold vital information that could be used to detect, deter, and defend against such activity. What does not seem logical is the fact that people assume that postings are not already being monitored by government organizations. But thank you for the reminder ABC.
