#1 These are My Friends who have sent very good and reliable source Intel that I need to operate.

It's pissing me off.

#2 Can information over Twitter be considered intelligence ? Though some analysts do use data generated from running patterns and language in posts through algorithms for intelligence, the reliability rating of that too is mostly E4.

The sources themselves could collaborate and have an independent portal to share stuff anonymously. Isn't Twitter like a "come-and-arrest-me" invite ?

#3 Can information over Twitter be considered intelligence ?

Interesting question from a 'justification' to shut down for national security sort of angle. Censorship is censorship. The only question is who is doing it, not whether its ethical or not.

#4 No, no. I'm totally for sharing intel, whistle-blowing and all. Hell, I even cheered for Snowden when his email dump buried Clinton's campaign.

I meant that sources should differ from the usual twitter riff-raff and have a separate platform, something whose credibility can be defined from the ground up. If I expose my NSA sealed files on twitter tomorrow, I look like another conspiracy nut looking for attention. So the credibility starts at a low number from the get go, even if my intel's good, no ? It gives the deniers and gaggers more leverage against me.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
