Thought I'd post this more for the comedy than anything else.
Rogue Tweet by Secret Service
That's pretty funny. I wonder if Fox & Friends talked about it today.
Politicizing the secret service isn't a good idea.
My recommendation: shut up and do yer job.
Apparently some employee thought he was logged into his personal account when he was actually on the official one.
So an accident, but a funny one nonetheless.
That's hilarious. Sounds like a democrat to me!
So our Government had one of our own watch Fox News? And here I thought enhanced interrogations was only used against our enemies.
Everyone seems to be missing to important point here:
Why does the Secret Service, as an organization, require a twitter account?
They use it as a quick, easy and free way to distribute press releases, just like many other government organizations and private businesses.
That's too pat an explanation. Try bringing in a conspiracy theory or two, maybe something about John Malkovich?
They are watching the right-wing, tea-party, anti-government, militia types who post comments on that website.
The POLITICO article, which I linked to in the OP, states that the Secret Service started its Twitter account, primarily, to recruit new employees.
(Yes, I agree that's a BS reason as a majority of the people on Twitter are most likely not the types the Secret Service needs/ wants.)
"Can't. Deal. With. The. Blathering."
Neither can I.
That's what they want you to believe. Besides, it's secret.
In the used-to-be, government folks only had the "Big Three" networks to watch for news. Now? Wow! Add Fox, CNN, Deutschewelle, Al Jazeera, AsiaNews and on and on. Plus CNBC and pMSNBC...
Divided attention = split personality?
They probably were not watching the news, but the people who watch Fox for their news. Big difference.
You think they have tapped into the Neilson database?
hah this is funny!
They were probably monitoring the comments on the FoxNews.com website, not the tv channel.
