The United States Secret Service has escalated their social-media surveillance methods as of late, and it makes things soooo much better for the common person.

The new technology is considered superior than tasking agents with creating fake profiles to gather and assess the public's social media commentary. According to www.nextgov.com, the technology also includes the abilities for “sentiment analysis,” "influencer identification," "access to historical Twitter data," “ability to detect sarcasm," and "heat maps" or graphics showing user trends by color intensity, agency officials said.
The program will operate in real time and totally respects your opinion.
