Once 'witty', now 'smart' Mumbai police continues to fight crime on Twitter
The Mumbai police's recent tweets may not may not be as witty as earlier, but they surely are more informative with statistics, instructions and counsel to help the common man
The Mumbai police with its witty one-liners and catchy tweets became an overnight social media sensation after being launched on Twitter in December 2015.
The witty and humourous posts on the feed really connected with the youth and has seen the account garner over one lakh 80 thousand followers.
The official accounts of both the Mumbai Police and the Commissioner of Police have done several issues like campaigns on women's safety, cyber safety, general traffic rules and avoiding drugs.
But Mumbai police's recent tweets may not be as witty as earlier, but are surely more informative with statistics, instructions and counsel to help people.
The word play may have been reduced in recent times, but not the effort in spreading awareness about issues that affect the common man.
Here are some tweets from their latest campaign that seeks to #StopCyberCrime:
Using the same password for all accounts is like using the same key for all locks. Please keep your passwords strong. #StopCyberCrime— Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) May 12, 2016
The concept of ‘free money’ exists only in fantasy land. Please be realistic and do not click on links that claim so. #StopCyberCrime— Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) May 10, 2016
Anonymity online provides opportunity to commit crime. Keep your passwords and other private data safe. #StopCyberCrime— CP Mumbai Police (@CPMumbaiPolice) May 10, 2016
They do still crack witty one-liners, but the frequency is limited. Here are a couple of their funnier tweets in recent times:
