The Greater Manchester Police is now tweeting names, birthdays and address of looters. While this information is public in England and it gets printed in papers, this is the first time Twitter is being used to broadcast this info.
Perhaps the police is doing it to let people know they are doing something. Publicly humiliating these bastards with Twitter is OK, I guess, but I would rather keep it quiet and smack them with some bricks and baseball bats. [TNW]
