Revealed: FBI chief's secret Twitter account
When Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey teased that he had joined the world of social media with secret Facebook and Twitter accounts, tech writer Ashley Feinberg took the dare.
All it took, Feinberg said on the Gizmodo website where she is a senior reporter, was for Comey to tell an audience of security professionals Wednesday night that he had very cautiously joined the social networking age to keep up with family.
“I care deeply about privacy, treasure it. I have an Instagram account with nine followers. Nobody is getting in. They’re all immediate relatives, and one daughter’s serious boyfriend,” Comey let slip.
Feinberg was piqued. “Who am I to say no to a challenge?” she wrote. She tracked down Comey’s family members, eventually discovering his son Brien’s Instagram account by way of a photo of him with an Instagram tag.
