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.
