As Sam Leith asks, why?
“The main problem with our security services monitoring social networking sites is that it will be a colossal waste of time. Facebook is the Reuters of inanity: a news agency for stuff nobody wants to know. “Dave is playing on Facebook. Dave is a bit annoyed. Dave is going for a drink. Dave has found a toothsome bit of cheese under the nail on his big toe.”
Are we seriously expecting al-Qaida to organise its next atrocity through Twitter? “@Osama going to shops to buy fertilisers lol ” … “@Mo on bus, OMG, virginz here I cum!”"
