Yesterday Belgian police conducted a bunch of raids in Brussels, detaining 6 suspects. During the raids, they asked that people not tweet about what was going on on social media, so that terrorists weren’t easily tipped off.
The citizens of Brussels did one better…
Oh they tweeted all right… they used the hashtag #BrusselsLockdown and then just straight up FLOODED the internet with fake tips, fake sightings, and a butt load of cat pics.
So. Many. Cat pics.
Well played, Brussels!
