Cops on Twitter

Posted:
(NBC) -- The word on the street is that cops know how to tweet.
A growing number of police departments are using Twitter and other social networking sites to get messages out to consumers.
Some departments use Twitter's short text message format to warn of traffic problems or why they're saturating certain neighborhoods.
Others offer crime prevention tips and ask for leads on crimes.
Even the FBI is on Twitter, and has two-thousand followers.
