400 murders so far in 2012, and naturally they want Twitter users advice:

The City of Chicago is asking residents with ideas on how to get illegal guns off the streets to share their thoughts — in 140 characters or fewer on Twitter.

The best submitted ideas will be debated at an Oct. 11 panel discussion during Chicago Ideas Week.

Participants may submit their ideas by using the hashtag #WhatIfChicago.

With a quick twitter search for the hashtag I was glad to see a lot of people not trying to blame the guns.  The twitter account @WhatIfChicago has been engaging some of the tweeters lately too.

This is obviously a social media marketing campaign for the upcoming Chicago Ideas Week (Starting Monday October 8th).  I hope the “best” ideas they pick to debate are not ones that will end up screwing over non-criminal gun owners in Chicago over.

Thoughts?  If you make a good pro-gun tweet using the hashtag, let me know in the comments!

I’m apparently “nice” on twitter:

If only there was a site that would rate the blog… i’d probably be an 11.

What’s your twitter douchebag score?  Post it in the comments.

COMMENT

I don’t ask you guys for much, but I’d like to ask you to please help increase my social networking presence:

You can do this the following ways:

I underestimated the power of facebook and got a really late start. The number of followers I currently have there is not at all representative of the actual traffic this blog gets.  I hope you guys can bring that a bit closer to equilibrium for me.

  • Please visit my Facebook page HERE and click the “Like” button.
  • Once you are there if you could also click the “Suggest To Friends” link in the right sidebar under my blog banner, and tell all your friends about the blog that would be awesome.

I made up a little explanatory graphic if you’re new to Facebook:



Twitter is a good place to keep track of blog posts because notification can get sent straight to your phone.  I also give occasional updates on when new posts are going to be appearing if I get a bit off schedule.

Please go to my Twitter page HERE and click the “Follow” button. You need a Twitter account to follow someone.


I haven’t come out with new content for a while.. but once I do you’ll be notified of it.

Please go to my YouTube page HERE and click the “Subscribe” button at the top of the page.

Alternately you can also just go to this direct link to the subscribe button.


Thanks a lot for supporting the blog. You guys keep me very motivated to write new posts with the amount of traffic you are sending here. Keep on clicking those “tweet” and “like” buttons on all regular posts!

When a car is reported stolen, an officer will confirm the report and get the owner’s signature on a form, Lt. Mike Edwards of the department’s investigations procedures unit said. Once that form is signed, the officer will call into the dispatch center and the information — a vehicle’s color, year, make, model, body type and license-plate number — will be tweeted to Twitter followers.

“It’s a force multiplier,” with citizens helping police see stolen vehicles and, hopefully, get them back to their owners more quickly, Edwards said.

Interesting idea if it works for them.  I could see it also working in the favor of criminals because they could just ditch a car once it has been tweeted.
