I think I heard that at least some classes of visa applicant are now being asked for their social media user-names.

Don't they already have all our emails in some digital vault under Nebraska or something? This country has way too much data, and far too little information. They have more data than anyone could ever make sense of, and it's counter productive in terms of finding any real nasties.

Speaking of which, apparently Jared Kushner registered to vote as a woman.

I doubt this will last long. They'll go through one too many of those 'pseudo-inspirational text pasted in front of a softly-out-of-focus sunset' posts and they'll all commit seppuku.

Not sure if a discussion forum is social media in the same way something like Reddit is, but oh well.

They will no doubt be enthralled by the reading about SM's knicker problem and knowing there was a shortage in Houston. All good info for disaster planning.

Well, things like that are important because it drastically increases the likelihood of being in an accident without clean underwear on.

A knicker crisis could bring this country to its knees. I think they should get a special squad on it.

According to BuzzFeed, the new rule could also affect U.S. citizens who communicate with immigrants on social media by making their conversations the subject of government surveillance

Does this mean people will now have a reason not to communicate with in-laws?

Everything is already surveilled and recorded. So there's no real change.
Unless there's extra scrutiny I guess. I'm sure I'm on several dozen lists already.

I can't show you pictures but we had NSA boxes in our data center (big telecoms provider) and they're in every data center. *Every* piece of data you send and consume is tracked. Literally, rack-sized boxes with black covers. No lights or cables. And cameras focused on the boxes.

There has to be so much porn in those boxes. So much.

Google has/is opening a big facility in Boulder. With my search history.... let's just say there's no point applying.

"So Mr O, I see from our notes that your hobbies are cycling, scuba diving, and cross-dressing midget donkey porn..."

Though the shifty bastards probably have a way round that too.
