LittleSis is partnering with MuckRock to investigate how police across the country are monitoring, tracking, and archiving public social media posts. To plug into our work, follow this link to file a freedom of information request using MuckRock’s platform.

In keeping with our mission to monitor and track the powers that be, we at LittleSis turned the surveillance gaze back onto the local forces monitoring social media. We not only dug into the corporate profiles of some of the companies police contract to snoop on your Tweets and Facebook rants, we also filed freedom of information requests to twenty police departments across the country to find out how, when, and why they monitor social media.

Neither do I, I'm too paranoid of being found by people, and I have no friends, NSA knows this.

They don't seem to track the lesser platforms which is good to know, so the forums are safe for rants. I was surprised to see Sina Weibo though.

That's Australia's equivalent to NSA.

They probably pay well. You don't really hear about them much. Most people behave here even if begrudgingly, lol. So you or I couldn't even get a job as a troll. :(

Australians are already accomplished trolls, it's a competitive area.

You youngsters seem to think this just started to happen.
Google up some COINTELPRO.
For more than 50 years, since I was a teen, I always thought the .gov swine were monitoring EVERYONE.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!
