KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Hundreds of people spent their Friday night in the back of a Kansas City Police patrol car via Twitter.
They were not in trouble with the law, but instead, following along with two police officers who responded to calls in the East Division via @KCpolice.
An employee from the police department tweeted every call as part of a tweet-along.
In one instance, someone told police how awful the Chiefs score was.
Another tweet read: Suspected prostitute admits she was "working." John getting searched. 3rd guy walked up claiming to be prostitute's boyfriend.
The next tweet stated, "Suspected John said he was just giving her a ride. Female now says she's not working "tonight."
This is the third tweet-along the department has done since April.
Police said they gain more follow Twitter followers each time.
"The reaction has been fantastic. We've gained...about 1,000 the first time, 700 the second," said KCPD employee Sarah Boyd. "It's a great people to interact with us."
The next tweet-along is scheduled for October.
