Technology that you use every day could be used as terrorist tools. Noah Shachtman reported on his Danger Room blog for Wired that a draft U.S. Army intelligence report examines Twitter, GPS, camera phones, voice-changing software and other common technology for their potential nefarious uses. No reference was made to bottled water or shoes on airplanes.
“Twitter is already used by some members to post and/or support extremist ideologies and perspectives,” said the report by the 304th Military Intelligence Battalion, which is on the Federation of American Scientists’ website. It also noted that GPS services have “been discussed in pro-Al Qaeda forums.”
