Twitter: Must-Have tool for Terrorists!?

I found this interesting piece of news at Yahoo News couple of hours ago. It seems that the US Army has identified Twitter as a potential terrorist tool!
… Twitter has also become a social activism tool for socialists, human rights groups, communists, vegetarians, anarchists, religious communities, atheists, political enthusiasts, hacktivists and others to communicate with each other and to send messages to broader audiences…

… Twitter is already used by some members to post and/or support extremist ideologies and perspectives…

… Extremist and terrorist use of Twitter could evolve over time to reflect tactics that are already evolving in use by hacktivists and activists for surveillance…

What the f*ck!?

Hitler is pretty unlucky then! If Twitter was around during his time, he would probably have more followers than Winston Churchill or General MacArthur! :-)
