Apparently the post office is trolling social media for extremist’s posts?
The details of the surveillance effort, known as iCOP, or Internet Covert Operations Program, have not previously been made public. The work involves having analysts trawl through social media sites to look for what the document describes as “inflammatory” postings and then sharing that information across government agencies.
Which, like, yes, someone official should probably be keeping an eye out for extremism and sharing that information around, but the Post Office? They do have a pretty crackerjack investigations unit from what I understand, but… Do they have jurisdiction? This is weird and a little concerning.
