Mike Ellis from the Emergency Comunications Network decided yesterday to try to launch “Thank A Cop Thursdays” (hashtag: #ThankACopThur) on Twitter. He started tweeting the idea out with help from law enforcement social media expert, Lauri Stevens (@lawscomm).
This afternoon, Ellis gave me an update on the effort:
“The response to #ThankACopThur was immediate and continues today. I sincerely have lost track of how many times #ThankACopThur has been RTd and shared with others in the Twitterverse. In addition to numerous tweets from tweeps in the United States, my friend @lawscomm told me that she has seen #ThankACopThur tweets from the Netherlands, Canada and the UK.”
