Watch what you say on Facebook and Twitter or you might not be able to enter the US.

A new proposal to ask visitors for their “social media identifier” could help border agents “investigate” your background without having to go to the NSA.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP), which is part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), believes having this “identifier” could help it find “possible nefarious activity and connections.”

If the plan is approved following a public consultation process that ends on August 22, those traveling under either the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) or visa waiver programs under Form I-94W would have the option of answering, “Please enter information associated with your online presence – Provider/Platform – Social media identifier,” according to the Federal Register.
