LittleSis and MuckRock Work to Uncover Police Social Media Monitoring Practices

The LittleSis political watchdog network partnered with the MuckRock collaborative news site to look into how police in the U.S. monitor, track, and archive public social media posts. LittleSis has filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests with 20 police departments for information on eight social media monitoring companies: BrightPlanet, Geofeedia, ZeroFOX, Intrado, LifeRaft, Magnet Forensics, Media Sonar, and Signal. The requested information includes the police forces’ contracts with the companies, records of correspondence with them, social media monitoring policy documents, and records of archived social media posts.

For more information, read the blog post.
