List reveals keywords feds monitor on Facebook, Twitter
MSNBC ^ | 2/29/12 | Rosa Golijan

Posted on 02/29/2012 6:04:57 PM PST by Nachum

Have you ever wondered if the government — or more specifically, the Department of Homeland Security — is monitoring your Twitter or Facebook posts? If the answer's "yes," give yourself a pat on the back because you're right and not simply paranoid. There's even a list of keywords for which subcontractors hired by the DHS check social networks. (Snip) Technically this monitoring is not done by the DHS, but subcontractors who are specifically hired to "monitor social networks–use to generate real-time IOI reports," of course. Internal policies demand that those reports are stripped of most personally identifiable information (PII), though

(Excerpt) Read more at technolog.msnbc.msn.com ...


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: facebook; fb; fbsearch; feds; keywords; list; reveals
They're looking for mentions of words and phrases related to government agencies ("Department of Homeland Security," "Homeland Defense," "agent," "task force," air marshal"), domestic security ("assassination," "attack," "cops," dirty bomb," "shooting"), hazardous materials ("hazmat," "nuclear," "chemical spill," "leak") and health concerns ("flu," "ebola," "contamination," "virus," "small pox").

Also on the list of IOI are terms related to infrastructure security ("airport," "subway," "critial infrastructure," "transportation security"), Southwest border violence ("drug cartel," "drug," "gang," "decapitated"), terrorism ("Pakistan," "target," "weapons grade," "biological weapon," "Taliban," "suicide attack"), emergency situations ("hurricane," "extreme weather," "brush fire," "power outage," "blizzard"), and cyber security ("malware," "virus," "trojan," "phreaking," scammers").

So... how many can YOU fit in one sentence....

Any virtual suicide attack that targets the cops by shooting a blizzard of these words into the critical infrastructure of cyberspace, where they are merely crammed into one sentence, like so much hazmat, is sure to bomb, while a gang leaking the terms, like a trickle of Ebola, flu, smallpox, and liberalism viruses to contaminate a breeze here and one there until they form a hurricane of alerts might do the job.

As if anyone SERIOUS about doing harm to America would likely use such terms.

And I wonder if they monitor such just in English, or in Arabic, Farsi Spanish, Portuguese, Russian etc.

I suggest that when referring to bands of the “entitled” EBT users that riot over new $200.00 sneakers , that they be referred to as “the Plague of Locusts”.

Yep, a good thing they are only looking for mentions of words and phrases related to government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security or Homeland Defense with agents and task forces or air marshals. Topics of domestic security like assassination, by cops with dirty bombs and shooting at of hazardous materials handled by hazmat such as nuclear and chemical spills that leak are never discussed here on FR. Some health concerns such as the flu or contamination with viruses like Ebola or small pox may occasional be mentioned though. However you can’t avoid talking about infrastructure without discussing the security of airports and subways as they are critical infrastructure needing transportation security.
Southwest border violence caused by drug cartel or drug gangs must be met with the decapitation of the criminal gangs.

Pakistan is often the target of terrorism which we all hope never involves any weapons grade biological agents used by the Taliban in a suicide attack. In the last couple of days, many Freepers have been suspicious of this site coming under cyber attack such as malware, viruses, trojan programs or phreaking and scammers. Others of us have worried about extreme weather, blizzards and power outages. Thankfully, it’s not the season for brush fires.

Nice talking to you, I have to go now. Someone is knocking on my door.

Actually, I'm relieved that our government isn't spying on us. Sounds like plausible deniability to me.

Oh, for Pete’s sake! These agents have to be bored to tears with some of this stupidity!

BLIZZARD - the gaming company that makes Warcraft, Starcraft, and should be rolling out Diablo III sometime this century.

DHS — the abbreviation for the Department of Human Services, which nearly every state in the union has.

FLU — I thought I had it until I was diagnosed with a sinus infection yesterday.

TARGET — a store that has lousy checkouts but can have good sales from time to time.

SHOOTING — my daughter is a photographer. And she doesn’t have an AGENT.

They are going to be very busy if they follow all the folks who might mention on Facebook that they think they have the flu. This is so dumb it reminds me of P.J. O’Rourke’s comment about government placing a camera in every room in every home. He said half of them wouldn’t be working.

That’s the point I was making above....it would be thoroughly possible to have a conversation about World of Warcraft that included multiple of those terms, but was 100% about the game and completely unthreatening.

Blizzard, both the company that makes the game and a Frost mage spell. Assassination, a rogue spec emphasizing a two dagger fighting style and quick transitions between fights. Shooting being the primary means for a hunter to attack their target.

It’s ridiculous.
