MoD warns careless tweets cost lives

The Ministry of Defence has launched a YouTube campaign to warn service personnel and their families of the danger of revealing sensitive information on social networking sites, as Marketing Week reported earlier this month.

A video series have been posted on the video site to provide military personnel with guidance on how to use social media sites without putting themselves or others at risk.

The campaign is in response to details of operation events, ship, aircraft and troop movements and home addresses being inadvertently revealed online. Last year the MoD said ten staff had been disciplined for disclosing confidential information via social media.
