UK Going Full Big Brother: Social Media, Blogs To Be Monitored In 'Real Time' For "References To...Government"

This post is a follow up on: UK's Cameron Announces Totalitarian Measures To Control "Extremist" minions - Because Just "Obeying The Law" Not Enough 5-13-15 "The aim is to catch not just those who spread or incite hatred on the grounds of gender, race or religion but also those who undertake harmful activities for the “purpose of overthrowing democracy”."

Your Facebook, Twitter and blog are about to be monitored for references to the Government

[Metro.co.uk] If you’re one of those people that gets a bit vocal about politics, you’ll be interested to know that your Facebook, Twitter and personal blog are about to begin being monitored for references to the Government.

Ministers announced yesterday that the Government had awarded a contract to five companies who will monitor what people tweet, post to Facebook or blog about the Government and provide updates to Whitehall in real time.

Officials and ministers will provide a list of keywords and topics to the companies so that they know what to monitor.

While the Government has at times monitored digital news for a number of years, this is the first time that the Government has awarded a contract specifically for that purpose, and the first time that its surveillance specifically includes social media.

Picture's worth a 1000 words - UK going all 1984 on the 'minions'

This "first time contract" awarded specifically to target social media and the blogosphere must be viewed as a highly significant development...which undeniably indicates "censorship" being taken to an entirely new level. Namely, full blown Big Brother.

This Big Brother coming-out party is not of course to be limited to just UK-ians...

As always, be well aware.
