New York Police Twitter Backlash Spreads Around the World

What began as an effort by the New York Police Department to get people to share favorable photos of city police officers on Twitterhas turned into an international social media campaign about police abuse.

As my colleague J. David Goodman reports, the Police Department’s Twitter hashtag #mynypd was quickly hijacked after @NYPDNews made its initial callout.

Do you have a photo w/ a member of the NYPD? Tweet us & tag it #myNYPD. It may be featured on our Facebook. pic.twitter.com/mE2c3oSmm6
