    FBI To Ramp Up Social Media Surveillance

    The FBI plans to step up its efforts to gather information from social media - issuing a call last week for a new tool to monitor Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms "in a timely fashion."

    Citing the use of social media by terrorist groups, domestic threats, criminal organizations and foreign intelligence services, the FBI "needs near real time access to a full range of social media exchanges in order to obtain the most current information available," according to the request for proposal.

    In addition to information such as user IDs, the feds are interested in "emails, IP addresses, telephone numbers, and likely aliases" used over social media. The tool would also allow for location-based tracking, persistent keyword monitoring, and access to one's personal social media history.

    The FBI has justified the tool by claiming it is in response "to an increasing number of threats to U.S. national interests that are identifiable, with ever-greater frequency, through social media platforms."

    It is an acknowledged fact that virtually every incident and subject of FBI investigative interest has a presence online. Consequently, law enforcement gaining lawful access (i.e., access that is authorized, appropriate, and consistent with applicable law and policy) to this data will result in early detection and/or containment of the magnitude of any harm caused by these threats.

    To protect US citizens, a method employed by the FBI is the acquisition of subscriptions granting access to tools.

    The Whole Entire World Is The ENEMY! Excluding those at the White House, of course... and some of the contractors.
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    Monitor congress!

    If these authoritarian $#@!s actually care about liberty instead of their pensions there are 435 problem children held captive ready for surveillance.

    433, I'll give Rand and Amish a pass. For now.

    As if they weren't already surveilling social media already.
