Even if this was literally true (and I think it's an exaggeration at best), the #5Eyes and all other state and corporate spy agencies are most likely building such databases. The only way to prevent that is
a) don't have these discussions in public
b) build tools for private social networking that use #E2EE etc so such databases are literally impossible to aggregate.
