Facebook, Twitter Co-Operated With Brazil Probe Of Alleged Militants

According to the judge presiding over the case, both Facebook and Twitter co-operated with investigators by providing information that led to the capture of about a dozen militants in Brazil. Not sure why any of these idiots thought using social media was a good idea.

In an interview late Sunday with Fantastico, a weekly news program on the Globo television network, Judge Marcos Josegrei da Silva said cooperation by both companies, after a judicial order tied to the investigation, was instrumental to understand the nature of discussions carried out by the suspects, a 12th of whom was detained late Sunday. "The companies began to provide data related to the content of the conversations and data about where those conversations were posted," the judge said, without providing more details.
