Social media goes to war

While I don’t make much use of the technology available to me I am appalled, frightened and fascinated in the “cold war” style arms race going on and using social (and allied) media.  The two links below are authoritative and thus will probably only report a small subset of what is known to the military and intelligence community.  The reporting is also, generally, optimistic; I expect the truth is less so!

I expect these articles will trigger your creative imagination; these surely are interesting times!
