    The American Stasi (Nappy's Ministerium der Staatssicherheit) continues to live up to its East German namesake with yet another way to rat out your fellow Americans to our very own homegrown Stasi:

    CNS News: Secret Service Asks Americans to Report Tweets That ‘Concern You’

    The Secret Service has expanded its operation to Twitter, urging Americans to report on their fellow citizens whose tweets “concern you.”

    “To report a tweet that concerns you, call the nearest field office in your state,” the Secret Service tweeted on Oct. 23. The agency then links to a list of contact numbers for Field Offices in each state.

    The Secret Service sent another tweet on Wednesday, again asking its followers to report tweets. “Contact your nearest field office with time-sensitive or critical info or to report a tweet,” it said.

    You can give our misplaced East Germans a touch of glasnost by Tweet!ing your thought to @SecretService.
