The Dallas Police Department - or at least the chief of the Dallas Police Department - is ruffling feathers in his attempt to take social media to the next level. 

They now announce the firing of officers on Twitter.

Brown's termination tweets follow a simple format, stating the name of the employee and the reason for the firing.

In 2013, twenty-seven officers and employees were let go; each departure was accompanied by a Tweet...

While this practice is not going over well in law enforcement circles, there seems to be an appetite for it by their citizens as the call for government transparency continues to grow.
