Pentagon wants social network blockade on troops access to Facebook and Twitter

Today Navy Times' Bill McMichael reports here that DoD may cut servicemembers access to social networking sites on government computers due to network security and privacy concerns.

If DoD does pull the plug on Facebook and Twitter it wouldn't be the first time the Pentagon has blocked similar popular networking sites. Back in 2007, DoD blocked servicemembers access to YouTube and MySpace.

On Thursday Wired.com was the first to report, here, on the Pentagon's latest social blockade attempt.
