Here's a better plan for the NSA that will save you all some tax payer money.
Stop looking for terrorists on twitter, when you're about to blow yourself up and are preparing for the end a couple of retweets is the last thing on your mind. Nobody is ever gonna announce or discuss a terrorist act on twitter.

And it's only one of 16 OR 18 things they're looking at!

It would actually be very useful. There is a whole sub-field where linguistics and computer science intersect called Natural Language Processing (NLP). There are a lot of really useful things computers can do if they can understand what people meant when they wrote something.

NLP can do really well at measuring the general sentiment (how good or bad) something is (sentiment analysis) but it falls apart when sarcasm is used.

So yeah, if you could make a sarcasm detector that worked well, you'd end up being rich and (within the academic community) very well known. Maybe not famous, but you'd be a big shot and end up in books and go around giving lectures. And you'd make buckets of money selling your sarcasm detector to sites like Amazon/Google/a million others. The financial services industry too, they're looking at ways of reading massive amounts of Twitter/Blogs/News Feeds to react to the market sentiment and understand sarcasm is necessary to achieve a high level of accuracy.

Saw a documentary recently (terms and conditions may apply).
included the story a guy who was going on a vacation to the US, with the intention of partying and having a good time. he posts something like this on twitter: "three days untill we go destroy america"
at the airport, he was stopped, detained for half a day, and asked about his twitter.
documentary points out issues of privacy, "thought-crime"-like attitudes and other stuff.

with a good automated understanding of intent, stories like that happen far less frequently. that means we get fewer false positives, but it also gives the NSA more room to spy on everybody, since they don't have to worry about false positives.
