NYPD Twitter Snitch Back Online

NYPD Twitter Snitch Back Online

The NYPD launched a pilot plan Wednesday, allowing five of it’s commanding officers to take to Twitter. One of which, Deputy Inspector Jeffrey Schiff, had previously disabled his Twitter account after coming under fire a year ago. The controversy began when it came out that the officer has been using Twitter to distribute the names and mugshots of convicts recently returned to his precinct after serving time in prison. Although, praised by some residents, others worried about Privacy issues and reported the officer to Legal Aide, who in turn threatened to sue. All that seems to be behind him now, as Schiff seemed nothing but joyous that he’s been allowed back into the Twitterverse.
