Ten Ways to Tweet Yourself onto an NSA Watchlist

“I didn’t send those tweets. My Twitter account was hacked!” ~ Congressman Anthony Weiner (former, NY)

For those unacquainted with the subtleties of the tweet, let me offer you a short Twitter primer.

  1. Tweets must convey information, a thought, a picture, a URL, or a combination of these in 140 characters or less.
  2. Handles must always have the @ preceding them. It’s kind of like owning a planet when you can put @ before your name.
  3. Hashtags–these things #####–are used to create searchable content, such as a group interest item (#TeaParty) a trending item (#Election2016) something completely irrelevant (#ObamasSuccesses) or something designed to be controversial (#ThingsIProbablyShouldntTweet)

Back in 2012, that year of innocence when hope was high and life worth living, I actually got away with these tweets!
