- Secret Service: Contact Us to ‘Report a Tweet’ (CNS News, Aug 6, 2013):
On a day when terror threats continued to dominate the U.S. headlines, the Secret Service — a division of the Homeland Security Department since 2003 — tweeted the following message:
“Contact your nearest field office with time-sensitive or critical info or to report a tweet,” said one message.
That tweet from the Secret Service links to telephone numbers for every Secret Service office in the U.S. or its territories (there are 117 of them) and all 20 Secret Service offices overseas.
In a separate tweet on Tuesday morning, the Secret Service asked, “Have you seen any of our Most Wanted?” This tweet links to a list of suspects, most wanted for theft or fraud. None are listed as suspected terrorists.
This is not the first time the Secret Service has asked its Twitter followers to tell on other subscribers.
