Some people fall in love at first sight. For me, it was the first tweet. That my friends was not very surprising, who listened to stories about my Internet flirtation had since I was a teenager, but as my husband and I met to gawk at us still something about newcomers in our lives.

“Wait, you love on Twitter find?” ask them. “I thought that was only for the messages read.”

When I saw Thomas for the first time, he was just a small avatar on my screen. My mouse hovered over his gorgeous eyes, piercing through the pixels, causing my fingers to feel free so that I could spend another one more second. Most say that eyes are the Windows to the soul, though his Twitter stream is what really begged me. He was informative, humorous and a little raw. Although it was a computer screen and a few hundred miles between us, I felt like I him this virtual stranger.Retweeting his words to his digital in eye-popping jump, I messages directly to questions, whether he wanted to drink at the next meeting I in his town was, visiting with my family (Yes, it turns out we were growing apart on two cities).

A month later we started travelling exclusively dating, secretly mid-week Amtrak in our schedules, each other above the peaks of our laptops giggle, when it was time to work and ends our short time together with slow dance parties for two in my studio apartment. But we often again in Twitter our love story more characters enter.

Comey said he understood the surprise “justifiable” many Americans felt after disclosures of Edward Snowden the former National Security Agency contractor on the massive government surveillance, but he argued that recent changes to companies such as Apple and Google to make data stored on mobile phones not accessible to the application of the law went too far.

“Maybe its time to think that the pendulum post-Snowden has swung too far in one direction – in a sense of fear and mistrust,” said Comey, speaking at the Brookings Institution in Washington, in his first political speech major from support for FBI 13 months ago.

“Justice can be denied because of a locked phone or encrypted hard drive,” he said.

The latest versions of Apple smartphone operating systems and Google a strong default encryption that cannot be broken even by the companies themselves – provided that users store data like pictures only on their own fate and not in the cloud.

Responsible for the application of the act as Comey fear that, as a result, certain types of data will “go dark” to investigators who need forensic data to solve crimes.

But Simon, well known critic of the representation of women in video games, released Tuesday night after learning of officials of University that the Utah law forbids colleges from carrying concealed weapons of holders of a valid permit. Utah is the only State in the country with such a law.

“It’s kind of astounding to me that they could not take efforts to ensure that there were not in an auditorium that was threatened and a massive shootout,” Simon told the Associated Press. “I do not understand how they could be so cut and dry in this regard.”

Wednesday – as the application of the Act attempted to find made the threat – Utah State University officials defended the measures that they were ready to take to the event in the middle of criticism of Simon.

“We think that security would be sufficient,” Tim Vitale, said the spokesman.

University president Stan Albrecht said in an email to students and teachers Wednesday that investigators had found the threat was not credible. The University has nevertheless planned to ban people enter with backpacks and add officers in uniform and plainclothes, said Vitale.
