Orange Alert!: Intelligence report indicates Twitterers threaten US security
by Larry Geller
I’m sorry to learn that conservatives are reportedly not using Twitter. They might enjoy it. Instead, Twitter is now to be feared as a tool of terrorists (and vegetarians).
According to this report by the the 304th Military Intelligence Battalion, Twitter is being used by communists to communicate with vegetarians, and for atheists to communicate with religious institutions. Clearly, something is afoot:
"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," the report said.

In case you’re interested in how to do it, the article includes several scenarios.
If you use Twitter (which category do you fall into?), you probably know everything in the report. Terrorists are presumably up-to-date on all kinds of technology too.
Just be aware that next time you tweet, someone might turn you in to Homeland Security. The day will come.
This is too funny! I love it! I'm already on Homeland Security's list for telling off security guards behind their property. Of course I didn't know that's where I was, but, hey.
Let's see, I Twitter, I go to Church, I believe in human rights, I've recently become enthusiastic about politics and, OMG, sometimes I even eat like a vegetarian! I'm done for!
