Who runs Mumbai Police’s twitter handle? Not Sub-inspector Gaitonde!


One single tweet by Mumbai Police on Wednesday sent twitter users into a frenzy of sorts.

With a warning for the city’s drug users, it’s tweet said, “If you roll, we will weed you out.”


The tweet soon began to be shared fervently and, in no time, it got shared for over 1500 times.

Twitters users couldn’t hide their appreciation for the sheer creativity in the tweets posted by the official twitter handle of Mumbai police.

Here’s how they reacted;

It isn’t the first time Mumbai Police has earned plaudits for its creative way of communicating with twitter users.

Here are some other creative tweets posted by them in the past.



A relatively late entrant to the microblogging site, Mumbai police’s popularity has soared phenomenally. Its official twitter handle has gained more than 31,000 followers within two months of being launched.

The cops have hired the services of an Indian content marketing and digital media agency Trivone Digital Services to run the twin twitter accounts of Mumbai Police and Commissioner of Mumbai Police, but the tweets are first vetted before being posted for public.

This user was right in guessing that the Mumbai Police’s account is not run by some Inspector Gaitonde- a name often used to portray a Mumbai cop in Bollywood movies.
