I came across the article referenced in the above tweet. It is a truly incredible story. You are strongly encouraged to read this article. This guy is just trying to “mind his own business” (no pun intended). All of a sudden he learns that he might somehow be subject to U.S. jurisdiction. He has no idea why or how and he can’t get good answers. It’s obvious that his only solution is to sever every possible tie to the U.S. and to any U.S. person.
