Fake Twitter Account of the Week: PRISM

Not only has the U.S. government been tracking your email and cell phone metadata, but, by the looks of it, it’s been tweeting about it!

Scratch that. On second glance, @PRISM_NSA is a fake account. But it’s a clever one, able to find a surveillance tie-in for timely topics as wide-ranging as open-source software, Father’s Day, gun control, online dating algorithms and the chronic challenge of getting anyone to read one’s blog.

The account has more than 15,000 followers. As for who’s behind it, you’ll have to ask the NSA.
