Careful With Your Words.....Government Key Words For Monitoring Social Media

I don't know the veracity of this but I figured I would pass it along......


The Feds have been forced to release their social network monitoring manual, which contains the list of words the government watches on social media and news sites.

Earlier the Huffington Post reported on the Feds have been forced to give up their list of words they monitor on Facebook, Twitter, and comments being posted on news articles, so I compiled that list below.


 Homeland Security Manual Lists Government Key Words For Monitoring Social Media, News

Ever complain on Facebook that you were feeling “sick?” Told your friends to “watch” a certain TV show? Left a comment on a media website about government “pork?”
If you did any of those things, or tweeted about your recent vacation in “Mexico” or a shopping trip to “Target,” the Department of Homeland Security may have noticed.
In the latest revelation of how the federal government is monitoring social media and online news outlets, the Electronic Privacy Information Center has posted online a 2011 Department of Homeland Security manual that includes hundreds of key words (such as those above) and search terms used to detect possible terrorism, unfolding natural disasters and public health threats. The center, a privacy watchdog group, filed a Freedom of Information Act request and then sued to obtain the release of the documents.
The 39-page “Analyst’s Desktop Binder” used by the department’s National Operations Center includes no-brainer words like “”attack,” “epidemic” and “Al Qaeda” (with various spellings). But the list also includes words that can be interpreted as either menacing or innocent depending on the context, such as “exercise,” “drill,” “wave,” “initiative,” “relief” and “organization.”

Heres the "LINK"

  3. The ATTACKS by the federal government on our freedoms are reaching EPIDEMIC proportions. These clowns are worse than AL QAEDA. It's an EXERCISE in stupidity. It's worse than the DRILL at the dentist's office. WAVE goodbye to your rights. Every new government INITIATIVE pushes RELIEF further from our grasp. It's getting harder to tell our government from any other TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

    TERRORIST was a bonus word...
