Twitter: a haven of terrorists, vegetarians

A new US Army report claims that Twitter could potentially be used as a communication tool for terrorists and other sketchy characters. Well, duh. As a communications tool, Twitter can be used by anyone to communicate anything. The same could be said for radio, the Internet in general, the Post Office, messenger pigeons, and smoke signals. I'm glad the US Military has so much extra cash lying around they can commission reports on the blatantly obvious.

But it gets better. From the report:

"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."

Oooh, those sneaky vegetarians. They'll destroy us all with their Twitter mastery. Thanks to Her Highnessness for the link.
