Harvesting Data from the Second Law Enforcement Tweet-a-Thon #poltwt

Tomorrow, November 1, starting at 8 a.m., law enforcement agencies around the world will connect via Twitter to participate in a 24-hour tweet-a-thon to bring attention to the use of social media by law enforcement. Agencies will tweet using the same hashtag, #poltwt, to create awareness about police work and issues police face as well as to promote the use of social media in policing.

During the event, we’ll be monitoring the conversation for law enforcement. We’ll be capturing and harvesting all the tweets with the #poltwt hashtag for analysis.
