From: Jason Smathers

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

All records of twitter messages which the USSS considers to be a threat against the POTUS. Include all records created on or after 1/20/2009.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Jason Smathers

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Jason Smathers

Please be advised, the USSS searched its main indices, and any responsive records identified in connection with that search have been located and forwarded to this office for review and determination of releasability. However, we want to update you on the status of your request and let you know that your file has been processed and is currently pending review.

Upon completion of the review, all documents that can be released will be made available to you. At this time, we do not have an estimated date of completion. We are making every effort to reduce the backlog of cases, and we sincerely apologize for the delay you are experiencing and appreciate your continued patience.

Sincerely,

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Jason Smathers

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Jason Smathers

On July 28, 2011:

I appeal.

The USSS Twitter page consists of messages composed by the USSS. Instead, I
seek messages sent by other twitter users which the USSS deemed to be a
threat to the POTUS.

Although most twitter messages are public, some are sent privately or to a
limited group. Furthermore, no compilation or index of twitter messages
which were considered to be a threat to the POTUS exists publicly.

In June of 2011, Twitter announced that 200,000,000 messages are sent via
Twitter every day. You cannot tell me the information is public because
there are billions of individual twitter messages or "tweets" that are
public and these public versions available from Twitter have no indication
whether or not the USSS deemed them to be a threat or not.

However, it is reasonable to assume that the USSS does make a copy of
twitter message which are deemed to be a threat. Furthermore, additional
records are surely generated as a result of that threat. These are the
records I am seeking. Please provide them to me.

Thank you.

Regards,
Jason Smathers

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request
the following records:

All records of twitter messages which the USSS considers to be a threat
against the POTUS. Include all records created on or after 1/20/2009.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I
look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business

FOIA APPEAL

Dear FOIA Appeals Authority for the Secret Service"

This is an appeal under the Freedom of Information Act.

Under the Freedom of Information Act, on May 5, 2011, I request "All records of twitter messages which the USSS considers to be a threat against the POTUS. Include all records created on or after 1/20/2009."

On July 16, 2011, my request was rejected. On July 28, 2011, I appealed that rejection. My appeal was granted via letter on Septmeber 2, 2011 which stated the records were located and forwarded to the FOI/PA Office for processing.

Nearly three years have passed and I still have not received these records. Therefore, I appeal the constructive denial.

Further, I have asked several times for an estimated date of completion, however, that information has not been provided. I also appeal the refusal to provide an estimated date of completion.

Regards,
Jason Smathers
