Twitter is a playground for the spooks

Tucker Carlson has suggested that Twitter “has been functioning as the arm of government intel agencies” as “a propaganda tool and intelligence gathering apparatus.”
 

“Could it be that while the rest of us imagined that Twitter was a social media site, a place to vent about politics and sports and the Kardashians, could it be that Twitter was actually, maybe primarily,  a propaganda tool and intelligence gathering apparatus for a variety of intel agencies? Well, yes, that’s possible.”

This isn't new. The blogger Sundance has been reporting on this for a long time.

There are several issues. One is the Deep State's desire to control information it deems undesirable, and that means curbing what it calls "domestic terrorists." From Reuters:
 
A counterterrorism organization formed by some of the biggest U.S. tech companies including Facebook and Microsoft is significantly expanding the types of extremist content shared between firms in a key database, aiming to crack down on material from white supremacists and far-right militias, the group told Reuters.

And the intelligence agencies are inside those companies. The most notable was James Baker, whom Elon Musk fired from his position as Twitter's deputy general counsel. He had been the FBI's general counsel and was deeply involved in the FBI's effort to get Trump. At Twitter he was vetting the files Musk was releasing. But Baker wasn't the only former spy at Twitter.

The second issue is that the intel agencies use social media to spy on us. What a perfect way to know what you think and with whom you associate. Software called Dunami is used by the FBI to “mine Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media to determine networks of association, centers of influence and potential signs of radicalization,” according to an investigation by Reveal.

Do you wonder why we haven't had another 9/11? One reason is that the intel agencies are using the Internet to track the terrorists. They're also using it to track "terrorists" who just happen to be ordinary American citizens with opinions the Deep Staters don't like.

So, have fun online. Just know they know.
