Is Twitter a terrorist tool?

Monday’s Future Tense (already recorded) was the last one on which I get to fill in for Jon Gordon. Too bad, because the U.S. Army’s assertion that Twitter, the social networking/microblogging/instant messaging service, poses a threat as a terrorist tool is worth exploring.

“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.

Vegetarians? Are they on a watch list now?

GPS cellphone service was also highlighted as a potential threat.
