Canadian Man Goes to Twitter to Find Some Weed, Local Cops Tweet Back

by Sam Ranard

It is 2013. Some say social media has killed interpersonal communication. People just aren’t picking up the phone and calling friends to say hello or wish them happy birthday….Or calling their drug dealer looking for drugs… they just go to social media.For one man, reliance on social media as a primary channel of communication almost landed him in jail. The man needed weed, and he needed it quickly – enough for a “spliff” anyway. So he took to Twitter. Asking all of his followers if anyone could deliver some weed to him at Mr. Lube, where he worked.

Interestingly enough, the local police department saw it on twitter, and promptly responded to the mans twitter request:

Social media has not only ruined interpersonal communication found in the everyday social lives of internet users, but it has also ruined personal communication between drug dealers and drug buyers. Mr. Lube found out and former Mr. Lube employee/drug-twitter-seeker has been fired.

Update: On a much more serious note, a young man, who hit and killed a biker,  has charges raised to murder after he brags about speeding on Twitter.
