The CIA is Watching Your Every Tweet

by cinta5 on October 19, 2009

Not just what you tweet, but your Amazon book review, your Facebook status, and your blog comments. According to, the CIA is investing in Visible Technologies, a software firm that specializes in social media monitoring. “It’s part of a larger movement within the spy services to get better at using ”open source intelligence” — information that’s publicly available, but often hidden in the flood of TV shows, newspaper articles, blog posts, online videos and radio reports generated every day.”

I already assumed the CIA was monitoring all of this, sounds like they are trying to stay ahead of the game.
