US Government to check social media of some employees

US Government to check social media of some employees. The US Office of Personnel Management is preparing for a pilot program to automatically track public social media postings of people applying for security clearances.

OPM is looking for companies that can automatically browse “publicly available electronic information,” which includes information posted to news and media sites; Facebook, Twitter and other social media postings; blog postings; online court records, updates to photo and video-sharing sites; and information gleaned from online e-commerce sites, such as Amazon and eBay.

This will only spread to all employees in time. You are free to speak, but the politically correct who run society are free to discriminate against you. So use a false name when posting online.
