Social media campaign from Greater Manchester Police

[tweetmeme source=”adamanddan” only_single=false]It’s not often that you see a social media campaign from the police. But this one is simple, informative and already causing plenty of attention. To highlight the sheer amount of incidents they deal with over a 24-hour period, they have set up 3 twitter accounts.

They will log each call they receive and post a short tweet about what that call was about.

    They’re all legit Shib, this is the type of shit people call the police with. Which reminds us, we’ve got a mystery bus to catch.
