Pot smoker talks about needing a spliff on Twitter, gets owned by Canadian Police Department

If you’re in need of a spliff, Twitter is hardly the best place to ask for it, as one Canadian pot smoker found out to his cost earlier this week.

People have been making stupid and ill-advised comments on Twitter more or less since it has existed but making a request for drug dealers to come to a specific location so that you could be hooked up with some ‘merchandise’ must rank up with one of the most foolish tweets ever posted.

That’s what one Twitter user in the town of Vaughan in Ontario, Canada posted earlier this week, not the shrewdest of moves as it was quickly picked up by the local police department, whose response to the original tweet was quite brilliant considering it came from a law enforcement body.

 

 

The York Regional Police followed up on that tweet with a warning about the dangers of talking about illegal activity on a forum as public as Twitter (see above) and while evidence suggests that they are pretty light-hearted and amusing in their social media activity, they also did their job as they contacted the employers of the guy who posted the original tweet, who was promptly sacked shortly afterwards.

Well, you know what they say, post a message about trying to meet drug dealers on Twitter… you’re probably going to get fired.
