U.S. Project to Research Terrorist Use of Social Networks

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) recently published a report to Congress that included information on a new research initiative to monitor online social networks. The project named "Reynard" will attempt to identify online terrorist activity.
"A senior intelligence officer at the ODNI said Reynard was in its very early stages and it was too soon to say which online worlds it would be studying. He added that any work on it would be purely for research rather than "operational" purposes."
