Interesting quote from The Saturday Paper

Martin McKenzie-Murray, writing for The Saturday Paper in this article, has the following quote from Australian Intelligence relating to the monitoring of social media in relation to terrorism:

“Social media serves as both recruitment tool and a broadcaster of terror. Authorities have told me they would prefer social media sites to retain extremist clientele as it allows them to better monitor group strategy and to study metadata – ISPs, dates, etc.”

This affirms the sort of logics at play in the paper I recently delivered on social media monitoring and protestors.
