This Barack Obama Tumblr was recently created in response to Internet privacy concerns. The blog called 'Obama is Checking Your Email' shows the American President looking at computer screens. Whether he is actually reading emails or not, this collection of images makes it seem as if he is.

The images show a range of candid captures showing Obama looking at monitors over the shoulders of children, intently reading something of interest and having a good laugh.

The blog doesn’t have any captions, just a title and a collection of pictures to make its point. While these are innocent enough, this single-serving Tumblr blog makes a political statement about recent events like the NSA whistleblower, which stirred up controversy about users’ online privacy and caused people to question if 'Big Brother' is always watching.
