Arrested for not using Twitter

TWEETSounds like a spoof story, but apparently this actually happened. To control a crowd of hysterical teenage girls NY police demanded an executive use Twitter and send out a Tweet telling them to disperse.

He didn’t comply & so was arrested. Details here on CNET

Forget tear gas, water canons, Tasers & SWAT – Twitter is the new police crowd tool.

Twitter now – it’s the law!
