The tweet a testimony of how ‘cool’ our police departments have become. In an age of instant social media craze, almost everyone is trying to get as many followers as possible. For the social media fans, the Assam Police’s tweet is a funny reminder of Mumbai Police, which can be called the original witty Twitter handle by cops. With 4.7 million followers, the Mumbai Police is popular among netizens for its sarcastic tweets, GIFs and in-your-face advisories.
The Mumbai Police never misses any trend, even if it is as whacky as #JCBkiKhudayi! ‘Superheroes, (J)ust (C)an’t (B)e with a crowd killing time!,’ tweeted the Mumbai Police with two photos of JCB and Spiderman!
On the official website, Assam Police wrote it has "developed proud and healthy traditions of service and conduct and though it had its failure and shortcomings, it has been able to play its part with credit and distinction and its record and performance have been as good and as worthy as that of any other police force in India."
