A reflection of Charlie Miller is pictured on his computer screen in his home-office in Wildwood, Missouri April 30, 2013. Miller is a security researcher at Twitter who previously worked for the National Security Agency (NSA).

Last week Siobhan Gorman of The Wall Street Journal reported that National Security Agency analysts have occasionally used vast surveillance tools to spy on love interests.NSA Chief Compliance Officer John DeLong told reporters that willful violations of spying rules — dubbed “LOVEINT” — happened on “very rare” occasions, adding that he didn’t have exact numbers because most of the violations were self-reported.
