Twitter Makes Congressional History – Your Tweets Remembered

Michael Augustine

As a leader and innovator of technology in both the public and private sectors I am personally amazed at how far we have come with the advances in technology. With the concept of social networking on the rise, it is now much easier to share information among your friends, family, and followers. This really became evident when Twitter burst onto the scene and become a huge success. Twitter made history when it first arrived on the scene with its innovative messaging technology concept which grew in popularity. Twitter has made history yet again recently, this time, congressional history!

Last week various news networks reported that the tweets that you create on Twitter are now being archived in the Library of Congress. Tweets that are made from profiles on Twitter that are set to “public” status will now be archived. Despite this historical announcement, freedom of speech on Twitter has now come at a cost, that cost is “your privacy.”

Archival of tweets from twitter public profiles has some privacy experts and organizations concerned. Within the world of computing where information is delivered within a fast-paced environment in real-time, someone can see your tweets immediately after they are posted. I have seen people lose their jobs and tarnish their careers over what they posted on their Internet social network profiles.

The video below provides more information on this historic event. This news event today also teaches us a very important lesson:

What you say can and will be used against you!

Watch yourself out there on the internet and “Tweet Safely!”
