Well in today’s world almost everyone is part of some social networking site even terrorists. Yes that’s right I said terrorists, recently a US Army intelligence report said that terrorist could use Twitter (a free social networking service that allows its users to send and read other users’ updates) as a tool to carry out their attacks. The report also had a couple scenarios in which terrorist could use Twitter, combined with programs as Google Maps or cell phone pictures or video, to carry out an attack. The report also stated that nothing has been said on the pro-Al-Qaeda forums, and that if terrorists would be planning to use these tools they would most likely be talking about it on major forums and blogs.

Off course they can. They can use pigeons too, or smoke signals. But I don’t think we pay the secret services of this world to figure that out. We pay them to see the bigger picture, to see beyond the means and into the methods. Otherwise I and everyone could be a special agent. Sometimes, however, I wonder if the latter is the case.

This sort of thing makes me feel like I’m using my Twitter time ineffectively. I normally just steal paid hours from my boss while I talk music and sports with random techies and bloggers I follow. Maybe I should be more productive. Anyone want to plan a hostile take over with me?
