The Manitowoc Police Department is pleased to announce that our Twitter account, @ManitowocPD is back online. In early October the account was hacked and several inappropriate tweets were put out by the hacker(s) under our name before the account could be shut down.
It has been quite a process to reestablish the account and measures have been taken to make it more secure. Unfortunately, through this reestablishment process, nearly all of our followers were lost, so we are essentially starting over with the account and are hoping the loyal followers we lost will again follow us, engage with us and allow us to share information with them once again through Twitter.
We look forward to using our Twitter account to communicate with all citizens, those who follow us from near and far, and the local and State media.
