The 2014 Global Police Tweet-a-Thon hosted and created by LAwS Communications is back. Starting Friday, June 27, at 12 a.m., law enforcement agencies around the world are invited to connect via Twitter and participate in a 24-hour Tweet-a-Thon using the hashtag #poltwt. We’ll be harvesting #poltwt data and releasing an analysis of the results next week.
#poltwt serves as a digital ride-along and creates awareness about police work and issues while at the same time promoting the use of social media in everyday policing. For this year’s Tweet-a-Thon, organizers want to step it up a notch and have challenges that include: Best Selfie, Best Video, Best Hangout On Air, and Best Overall Innovative Use of Social Media.
