Twitter Account: Anonymous
Tonight I want to tell you about the Twitter account, Anonymous @YourAnonNews. First of all, Anonymous is very intriguing with shadowy undertones, blended strangely with common sense, and fiery rebellion. I honestly love following this account. They lean left, and are progressive fighters for internet freedoms.
During the day, they will hook you up with news you would never hear about from the big few: CNN, PBS, FOX, MSNBC, BBC et al. Tonight, for example, they posted a link to a blog, originally posted on Salon, featuring a child injured by a SWAT grenade that was fired into his crib during a drug bust that netted nothing.
Anonymous has recently taken on techie preppy, Mark Zuckerburg, of Facebook fame. If Anonymous is right, and Zuckerburg is tracking my web browsing history, and mining my personal data even when I am not on his site, then maybe I should disconnect my FB account and clear my cache.
If you want to follow dissension in real time, and enjoy a few laughs along the way, then Anonymous is definitely for you. They ride the two big acronyms (FBI and CIA) like camels, exposing numerous internal scandals and interesting tidbits. Recently, they have focused on some moves made by the internet giant Google, and they are currently following activist sit-ins at corporate in Seattle, Washington.
I don't really know what "net neutrality" means, so I will remain silent except to say that this is one of the contentious internet discussions currently highlighted by the activists in Seattle. You should stop and think about it though: we are giving up a lot of internet privileges, we are cramming personal data and documents into Google accounts, and we are constantly under surveillance in unimaginable ways as demonstrated by Snowden.
Join the 1.2 million souls currently following Anonymous--enjoy the intrigue, and think about the valuable information.
