In the age of constant surveillance, jokes may be the only way to deal with the possibility of being constantly spied on. On Twitter, users have developed a running joke where every person on the internet has a dedicated FBI agent assigned to them. The agent acts as observer, friend, and companion during your time on the internet, and can even help you in times of need.
We may never know if people actually watch us via our computers webcams, but at least Twitter has had fun with the idea in the meantime:
Sometimes before I leave the house I wave to my laptop camera just to brighten the day of the FBI agent. Friendliness is contagious you know.— Cole M. Sprouse (@colesprouse) January 26, 2018
I wonder what the FBI agent watching me thru my laptop camera thinks about me whenever I cry over a TV show— Lissa (@AlissaS19) January 29, 2018
Guys, I just sneezed in front of my laptop's webcam and I kid you not... the FBI Agent said "Bless You". If that isn't goals, idk what is— Mike (@michaelvito) January 26, 2018
On the internet, you're never truly alone.

Honestly, the FBI agents may be getting the raw end of the deal...
Me: *opens laptop*— Alex Gonzalez (@aleksglz8) January 28, 2018
FBI Agent: Oh he’s finally gonna do his homework
Me: *Opens up Netflix and disappoints yet another person in my life*
If they're going to watch, the least the agents could do is help out!
The amount of times I’ve fallen asleep at my laptop and my assigned FBI agent never even tried to help finish my essays smh— jazmina (@jazminelahbabi) January 29, 2018
But true friends always resolve their conflicts.

In truth, the FBI agent's jobs aren't very glamorous.
