Yeah, so what?
People shouldn't be afraid of their government. The governments should be afraid of the people.
It's often only the Drones that people are afraid of Cags!
Actually, I have become quite an activist on every subject from #OWS to #Environment #Conservation #GulfOilSpill #Homeopathy #CAM #AltMed and everything under the sun that I feel citizen should have concerns.
The more we gather strength the more our voice will be heard.
And your point?
Before you can do anything with regards to a "voice" or "strength", increased awareness is required.
I will have to pick up on this thread tomorrow. Really tired. It's late. Thank you PS for bringing up this issue. •ღƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒღ•
If the government really wants to archive my tweets containing my rantings over being fat and pregnant... then they obviously have too much free time. lol
Ya know... I have this awesome rant hub that talks about society, and our beloved corporate America and government in general. Google absolutely and positively refuses to have anything to do with it. Maybe I should start tweeting the sucker, one line at a time...
Shhhhush... Don't crow about tweeting!
What sort of bird are ya?
Perhaps it's a good thing. Unless your tweets are treasonous or racist there should be nothing to be afraid of. If, however, you are planning the next gunpowder plot, Twitter might not be the ideal tool.
This is old news.
The Library of Congress is not the government. Yes, they are a government agency but not working for the federal government. They collect a copy of every book too you know. It's for historical reasons and research.
And unless your Twitter username is your real name how are they going to know they come from you?
It appears to be new news that Twitter has partnered with the Library of Congress to document tweets.
I am bold enough to use my real name as my identity.
And if you write a book they will also document that. Still much ado about nothing.
Well, I heard months ago that Tweets were being archived.
A Saudi prince just bought $300 million dollars investment in to twitter? He is also a major stockholder of News International?
Just a little curious?

According to Glen Greenwald, we now have twitter terrorism. Of course what twits are threats will be determined by the Dear Leader. All evidence will be classified.
I think having tweets archived might be useful to future historians. So, it's okay with me.
I thought the internet inherently archived our tweets. *shrug*

This is not a political question but a fact checking question. Just curious how the people have been affected by the shut down?For me, not one bit. If the news did not report on this, I would not know it. I live in Westchester county NY about 1 hour north of NYC. I am retired, my social security...

Why are so many federal workers who are either furloughed or not getting a paycheck complaining? First of all, if you work for the federal government, you should be more than aware that a shutdown is possible and prepare for the worst. If you haven't prepared for the worst, whose fault is that? If...

It's generally accepted that if everyone would wear masks, we could substantially reduce the number of COVID infections.To get America back on its feet and to reduce COVID, how would you respond to a federal mask requirement for 3 months? This would be a limited legal requirement for a limited...

I support the Arizona Immigration Law and I'll gladly tell you why....I've read it. All of it. I've been slammed from every corner for supporting profiling. I always ask my critic, "Have you read the law?" the answer is usually a resounding yes yet, when I ask them...

I'm not attempting to swat a hornet's nest here. I just keep hearing the refrain "no government is good government" or words to that effect.According to the tea-party folks I've spoken to government is wasteful, bloated, and ineffectual. Which makes me wonder; where do we draw a line? Is...
