This police department threatened to 'visit' Twitter users -- and got roasted for it

Police in Glasgow, Scotland wound up getting more community engagement than they bargained for on Friday after encouraging users on Twitter to "use the Internet safely."


The BBC reported that the issue began when the department's official Twitter account Tweeted, "Think before you post or you may receive a visit from us this weekend," with a graphic showing the word "think" as an acronym for users to ask themselves whether their posts were "true, hurtful, illegal, necessary" or "kind."

The department's tweet can be seen below:
