The Keywords the DHS Is Using to Analyze Your Social Media Posts
According to this document, received by EPIC under the Freedom of Information Act, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is combing through the gazillions of social media postings looking for terrorists. A partial list of keywords is included in the document (pages 20–23), and is reprinted in this blog post.
EDITED TO ADD (3/13): It's hard to tell what the DHS is doing with this program. EPIC says that they're monitoring "dissent," and the document talks about monitoring news stories.
