on twitter 29 Nov 15
On every compose a tweet area, Twitter asks you one question: What's Happening? 

From the 100 or so twitter accounts, I've created a data set using Topsy looking at replies to (or name mentions) and then how many tweets made by each account user (retweets are ignored by Topsy, kinda fair enough as a RT is hardly a typed reply).

My theory being, are there maybe a dozen accounts that are ones to watch - on a few officers that are actively engaging with the public they serve. I'm delighted to report there are..

In my view there are 103 officer style accounts and then the main @essexpoliceuk which is not part of this study (as a not a person).

Essex Police Twitter Accounts Mapped

This post was first made on my mike downes media website as it has a wider page width and maps will look better, it reads:

This interactive map has been produced from the public twitter list at Essex Police UK - Officers who tweet (time of writing 102 members, I've added the main force account too).

All pushpin locations are approximate based on what we can see in each twitter bio. The purpose of the map is to give a rough idea where the officers are located.

Of course they are not the same image URLs on twitter - they are a copy stored on Google.
