Please Rob Me, My house is empty now (-:

Do you leave your current location unsecured over internet ? Just before a few months a person blamed on his twitter status for robbery in his house. He was on holiday and updated his twitter status. The thief used twitter and robbed his house.

Please Rob Me is a website which tracks your location using your twitter status. The website displays that you are out of your home now and your home is empty. They track it using your hometown and location of last status update on twitter.

Shocked why they are doing this and helping robbers? Actually analysing a twitter status and telling robbers that the house is empty will make everyone think that they are doing wrong thing, but this thing can be done manually too. Point they want to show is online privacy issue. Only one twitter status can make robbery in your home.

There are many privacy issues on internet, we should work for that. We should patch them and make the internet safest.
