Seattle police have started using an interesting tactic in the war against car thieves. They have set up the ‘Get Your Car Back’ Twitter account to tweet the year, make, model and color of stolen vehicles.

People in Seattle really are ahead of the times. I think the ‘Get Your Car Back’ Twitter account is a great idea, and apparently so do the 764 other people who follow it. The times are changing rapidly, and it is nice to see law enforcement at least making an attempt to keep up. Stats for Criminal-Catching Tweets Trending: Older & Chilly
