Government Monitoring of Social Media

You can't have it both ways. If you want your government to detect whether your kids are being radicalised on Twitter or Facebook then you have to accept that all your Internet activity is being observed.

The UK government keep on asking for greater powers to monitor what its citizens are doing on the Internet and yet they miss much of what is going on. This includes those that are planning to go to Syria on Jihad or those that are going to shoot cartoonists. Even when individuals have been determined their activities are still ignored and they still commit the atrocities that they were planning all along. So my question is: Do governments really have all the powers that Snowden says that they do? If so, they are pretty incompetent.
