A fake account on Twitter is trolling the Islamabad Police

As if the Islamabad police force doesn’t have other issues to deal with, a Twitter user has been trolling the police via the social media website by setting up a fake account by the name of the police and tricking unsuspecting users into thinking it’s the real thing.

An account on Twitter by the name of @ISB_Safe_City disguising itself as the Islamabad police has been tricking Twitter users into thinking that it’s the official account of the Islamabad police force.

This account then went on to message random people on Twitter and reply to and like their tweets.

Twitter users were astounded at what they believed was the official account of the Islamabad Police responding to their tweets. Sadly, the excitement was short-lived, as the Islamabad police force were quick to dispel the authenticity of the account.

As hilarious as the incident was, it’s probably best for these types of episodes to be short-lived as it’s vital for our police force to be focusing on serious issues, as opposed to Twitter trolls.
