1. A method of issuing a response by a computer system to a notification regarding a social media post, comprising:
submitting, by a security server, a subscription request to a social media server via an Application Programming Interface or other method of interprocess communication, wherein the subscription request comprises a request to be notified of changes relating to data associated with a user account;
receiving, by the security server, from the social media server a notification that a user has posted data via a social media platform, wherein the posted data comprises at least a text portion;
accessing the text portion of the posted data;
submitting the text portion of the posted data to a data scanning routine;
accessing a set of pre-established rules for data being posted by users via the social media platform, wherein the set of pre-established rules was established before activation of the data scanning routine with respect to the user account posting the text;
determining, by the data scanning routine, based on the set of rules, whether a rule requires an action from the computer system, wherein the determining comprises performing an expression match between the text portion of the posted data and a set of pre-selected expressions;
identifying an action required by the rule; and
performing the action required by the rule.
