Ashley Feinberg’s search for James Comey’s Twitter presence is highly entertaining:
Digital security and its discontents—from Hillary Clinton’s emails to ransomware to Tor hacks—is in many ways one of the chief concerns of the contemporary FBI. So it makes sense that the bureau’s director, James Comey, would dip his toe into the digital torrent with a Twitter account. It also makes sense, given Comey’s high profile, that he would want that Twitter account to be a secret from the world, lest his follows and favs be scrubbed for clues about what the feds are up to. What is somewhat surprising, however, is that it only took me about four hours of sleuthing to find Comey’s account, which is not protected.
Definitely worth clicking through.
I wonder what Reinhold Niebuhr would think about the Director of the FBI violating rules and norms to publicly infer that one candidate for president was a crook based on nothing, at the risk of putting a grossly unqualified buffoon into the most powerful job in the world?
