Raytheon has developed software that mines information from social networks to track what you’re been doing and what you might do in the future.
The sophisticated technology demonstrates how the same social networks that helped propel the Arab Spring revolutions can be transformed into a “Google for spies” and tapped as a means of monitoring and control.
Ratheon doesn’t have a customer yet, but it has shared the technology with the U.S. government. Luckily, we don’t need to worry about that because the U.S. government are the good guys. If you don’t believe me, just ask them.
