Greater Manchester Police force are tweeting every single 999 emergency call it receives over a 24-hour period. GMP is currently faced with having to make budget cuts of up to £7 million. Chief Constable Peter Fahy has opted to use social media to show how much work the police has to deal with and how cuts stretch resources.
The above tweet is a parody from a spoof account. However, as TNW points out, real life is funnier than parody. See this example: “Call 384 report of man holding baby over bridge – police immediately attended and it was man carrying dog that doesn’t like bridges”.
