Gotta feel safer with the secret service on the job.
Check it out:
The Secret Service will be combing through messages on Twitter, Facebook and other social media messages Sunday as it seeks to thwart possible threats against the Super Bowl.
It’s part of a massive security operation for the big game between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, the Secret Service will be conducting open source monitoring of social media for “situational awareness.”
Officials told NextGov that they will be using social media tracking technology as they seek to discern between real and bogus threats at the Super Bowl.
