I have a Android HTC so I can say this. The phone sucks. I don't trust that my cell phone won't freeze or turn off the internet mid purchase. Just last week I was using my phone in the airport to find another flight on kayak and the phone went on the fritz. I jumped on the macbook instead. So I don't think Android is the problem I think that the types of phone that use Android are subpar. I have and trust buying flights, rental cars and gifts on my I-pod touch over my HTC Android. The hardware is just more reliable.

I think this is tricky for the following reasons:
1) many people post under pseudonyms
2) posting updates are at very best rants not to be taken seriously
3) the invasion of privacy is on a non-serious platform is extreme
4) if this is so then there needs to be a warning on Facebook and Twitter that states "What you post could and will be used against you in a court of law."

I'm sure that lawyers will have a field day with this. Just to play devils advocate Twitter has been quite successful for the CDC in gauging the flu seasons. They look at the amount of people that have hashed #sick , #cold or #flu and can approximate the nations health and wellness.

No one should think the internet is private!
