(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. military plans to analyze 350 billion social-media posts from around the world to help it track how popular movements evolve.

A tender for the project, based at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, calls for screening messages from at least 200 million users from more than 100 countries in more than 60 languages to better understand “collective expression.” Messages, including user names, will be examined for comments, metadata, location and hometown identifiers.

While it’s part of an existing Department of Defense Analysis effort to harness big data for social research, “the scale and global reach of this program is striking,” Antoine Bousquet, a senior lecturer in international relations at Birkbeck, University of London, said by email.

The study’s purpose is to look at social-media messages posted publicly between July 2014 and December 2016 on a single platform, according to a solicitation request. No private communications will be included and individual users won’t be identified in the research, according to the Navy.

What Mobilizes People

Facebook Inc.’s primary platform has more than 1.2 billion daily active users and Twitter Inc. has more than 300 million monthly users. Printed on letter-size paper, 350 billion individual messages would make a stack about 10,000 miles high.

T. Camber Warren, the project’s principal researcher, said the data will be used for increased understanding of communication and how patterns of discourse change over time.

He previously studied internal conflicts in Africa, showing how mass media such as radio broadcasts can have a pacifying effect, while social media can inflame collective violence.

“Social media data allows us for the first time, to measure how colloquial expressions and slang evolve over time, across a diverse array of human societies, so that we can begin to understand how and why communities come to be formed around certain forms of discourse rather than others," Warren said by email.

The data can be used to train algorithms to understand “increasingly subtle shifts in cultural context,” he said.   (Z:  And other stuff, lots of other stuff)

Sowing Divisions

Such projects are important to help defend against adversaries seeking to undermine democracy and create divisions within western societies, said William A. Carter, deputy director for tech policy at the Center for Strategic & International Studies in Washington.

“We need to better understand how narratives are shaped and communities are formed online to defend ourselves against these campaigns,” he said.

Yet collecting and analyzing large tracts of publicly available data is open to abuse.

“There is a risk that as we learn to exploit this data to manage how people interact online, it will give governments and bad actors tools that they can use to manipulate our thoughts and behavior,” Carter said.

Intelligence services, corporations and political parties already have used social media to manipulate beliefs, elections, product sales, etc.    Democrats use social media heavily to manipulate public opinion against Trump and anyone else who thinks the US should remain a free country.

 

The US military couldn't possibly undo the damage done by US news media and Hollywood.

Typical USA double talk.

"Messages, including user names, will be examined for comments, metadata, location and hometown identifiers."

 

"individual users won’t be identified in the research, according to the Navy."

It's deception again - the US government already can identify, locate, and find any internet user anywhere in any Western country, and they prove that every day when they arrest people for child porn, for running internet gambling, and many other crimes.

 

How they do that has already been exposed in news articles and factual accounts.  

 

What they are trending toward is the creating of "Thought Poiice" similar to the religious police they have in China, Saudi Arabia and other Islamic nations with oppressive governments.   Your "Social Credit Score" determines whether you have a job or go to prison.

 

These governments are not nice people and the US is one of them.    Nice governments don't try to control what people think and say.

It's at the stage now...who gives a shit what these Jews and the Jew world odor to monitor everyone in the world with their retard Bolshevik crap thinks any more....It is so time to throw the Jews off our planet

 

They are letting this stuff be known to get the Goy to fear and shut up....Once the Goy don't fear these jew demons anymore they will melt away like the lunatic cowards they are!...Why do you think the jew always get others to fight their wars for them?...because they are cowards...The Jew cowards couldn't fight their way out of a wet paper bag....Hezbollah proved it in 2006

 

Why do the jews always try to make the Goy live in fear ?  Because fear is a very low emotion and when a human has that very low level of energy he is easily controlled...

 

 

Fk these Jew psychopaths and let's just wipe them out once and for all, and you can bet humanity will live in peace after that...Guaranteed

 

Why do you think PSYCHopaths are called that> Because they attack the Psyche to control Goyim...Jews attack the Goy by constantly bullshitting to them to make them live in fear with their media, Boogeyman is trying to kill you, disease is trying to kill you,Globull warming is trying to kill you etc etc...never stops with these jew demons... everything is trying to kill us and they can save us if we give them our souls...

 

Fuc k that shit...let's just fucking eradicate this plague of parasites so we can live in peace...no peace ever with the Jew parasite among us...has been proven for over 2000 years now

Yes, at some point there isn't much more they can do to us if we protest, because they are already trying to kill us with GMO foods, weed killer, cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, terra-forming chemtrails, fluoridated water and foods, adulterated vaccines, etc.
