The government could start monitoring what we put on social media.

The Department of Social Protection is looking for tenders for a contract which would see online discussions and certain words that may flag issues monitored on Facebook and Twitter.

According to the Irish Times, there are plans for three bodies, a print and digital media monitoring service, one for broadcast media and another for social media.

But privacy experts are raising concerns about the government processing sensitive information.
