You may not always agree with the cops, but you have to agree that their social media game has become pretty ace over the years. They use equal parts memes, clapbacks, and savagery to take down people on Twitter.
Recently, Twitter user Ashwin Vinod asked the Mumbai Police what sticker he should use to go and meet his girlfriend during the ongoing curfew.
@MumbaiPolice what sticker should I use in order to go out and meet my girlfriend? I miss her😔— Ashwin Vinod (@AshwinVinod278) April 22, 2021
The Mumbai Police Twitter handle didn't miss a beat, and replied with this.
We understand it’s essential for you sir but unfortunately it doesn’t fall under our essentials or emergency categories!— Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) April 22, 2021
Distance makes the heart grow fonder & currently, you healthier
P.S. We wish you lifetime together. This is just a phase. #StayHomeStaySafe https://t.co/5221kRAmHp
Now that's the perfect combination sass and class. And the folks online appreciated banter.
