Join our campaign: tell social media companies to draw a line at the border!

When you go abroad, you expect to show your passport right? But what if immigration authorities wanted access to your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts before they let you enter a country? What if they wanted to vet you based on your updates, photos, likes, retweets and even your DMs?

We think social media companies, who make literally billions of dollars out of you, and wield massive power and influence, should challenge governments on YOUR behalf. They should be protecting their users from massively disproportionate intrusion. We have written to Facebook, Google, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Reddit and Tumblr to ask them what steps they will take to protect you from this massively disproportionate intrusion. 

You can join our campaign: download the pictures below and share them on social media and @ them to Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, and Mark Zuckerberg, Chairman and CEO of Facebook and Instagram - don't forget to use the hashtag #drawaline.
