Politics, open government, and safe streets. And the constant incursion of cycling.

I Warned You About Twitter

All that time you’re spending on Twitter?  You’re harming US national defense, as some portion of the military is apparently spend its time analyzing your tweets instead of doing something useful.  From a recent report issued by the 304th Military Intelligence Battalion (of the U.S. Army):

Twitter has also become a social activism tool for socialists, human rights groups, communists, vegetarians, anarchists, religious communities, atheists, political enthusiasts, hacktivists and others to communicate with each other and to send messages to broader audiences[.]

Seriously.  Vegetarians?  Some military unit spent time creating this report.  Boggling.  Next up: terrorists AND those weird macrobiotic diet people use the telephone system!  Oh noes!11!!!

(BTW – the attraction of Twitter remains a mystery to me, despite the fact that I’m a member of a number of the noted groups.)


NAACP Lawsuit Over Virginia Elections: Merits?


DC Man of the People: Rep. Don Young


  1. I will join in the mystified-by-Twitter camp. I think Twitterers really do hate America. (And I habitually kick them off my LiveJournal friends list.)

  2. I Twitter, but I don’t post my tweets to LJ.

    Obsessive tweeters annoy the crap out of me. I prefer a little moderation. I guess that makes me a moderate terrorist–maybe I should consider vegetarianism…
