Aren't they, to some extent, duplicating intelligence/security/defense pattern search for threat or potential threat.
Tech speaking it could challenging to deal with such an amount of data.

|"People have historically used Twitter to communicate with friends and networks in the belief that their tweets will quickly disappear into the ether," argued Gus Hosein, executive director of Privacy International. |
Bunch of whiny little delusional babies.
Nothing you post online goes into the ether, it gets stored forever, somewhere.
Gus should be concerned as his silly naive quote about privacy above will still be hanging around the next time he puts his resume out for a job.
Maybe he should've tweeted it instead ;)

And there lies the power of twitter. Only a small % of users get the lions share of the benefits and the rest may as well be drones propping those accounts up. Build a big pedestal or go home.
This deal just makes it easier to abuse the system further and it puts money in Twitter pockets. Neither of those things help casual users, asides from possibly helping twitter stay afloat.

@sgt_kickaxe, so you think they do anything different on TV ads? How is this different except you can more accurately target than with a TV which doesn't know much about who you are, just your general neighborhood demographics.
Trust me, those Lexus, Lincoln and Mercedes ads running all night on my TV stations aren't being aimed at the people in the trailer park puffing Marlboros and drinking booze from a mason jar.
