Police officers memorialize victims of September 11 using social networks.
The New York Police Department is using Twitter to memorialize fellow officers who passed away during the terrorist attack on 11 September, 2001. The social media campaign started a few days ago where the @NYPDnews account tweets the name and rank of a fallen police officer, followed by the hashtag #neverforget. Each tweet is also linked to its Facebook page where it includes more details about the officer, along with a photo.
It’s the first time NYPD has conducted a memorial over social networks. Paul Browne, a spokesperson for NYPD, told the New York Post that the department got the idea after launching its Twitter and Facebook accounts this year.
