Greater Manchester Police vs. UK riots

Greater Manchester Police have a reputation for doing pioneering work in UK public sector social media, notably the 24-hour marathon of tweets that showed all the events that they got call out to. Now they are publishing the names, date of birth and addresses of everyone that they successfully prosecute for their involvement in the riots.

They are also using YouTube to disintermediate the press and speak directly to the general public. You can follow the Greater Manchester Police twitter feed @gmpolice
