Staff Writerlaunch a public relations campaign on April 22. Using the official NYPD twitter account, they asked followers to post pictures of themselves with NYPD Police officers using the hashtag #myNYPD. And, of course the Internet Trolls smelled fresh blood from a mile away. Users then began posting pictures of police officers apprehending suspects in a very aggressive manner, captioning it with sarcastic comments. To the average twitter user, it has become a source of entertainment, and as with other things on the internet those pictures may end up going the rounds of other social media sites as they are re-shared repeatedly, which is hardly the image that the NYPD was going for. Maybe next time just use the NYPD twitter account to just tweet out a picture of police officers helping an old lady?
