The primary threat to the Olympics from FReepers is shoving a sock in Bob Costas's pie hole.

Like the real terrorists are going to tweet...

- “Ok, we’re going to start at 8pm at 12th and Maynord”

- “Hamid here, make sure Hassan is there”

Facebook is not on the list, because Homeland Security employees would be required to login there (re. earlier piece linked from Drudge).
