'NYPD' New York City Police Department twitter request fail happened Tuesday. The 'NYPD' New York City Police Department twitter request is a photo campaign held by the department calling on New York residents to promote police officers. However, in a strange fashion, the 'NYPD' New York City Police Department twitter request surprisingly triggered a huge backlash.

The call to action of the 'NYPD' New York City Police Department twitter request was started as the department said on their twitter account that twitter users can share their pictures posting with a police officer. The 'NYPD' New York City Police Department twitter request told the public to use the hashtag "myNYPD" along with their photo with a police officer.

The original tweet for the 'NYPD' New York City Police Department twitter request is below.

However, instead of positive responses, what the 'NYPD' New York City Police Department twitter request produced from twitter users came fast, and not exactly how they interpreted the responses to be. Online activists and apparently angry citizens and twitter users instead uploaded images showing potential brutality and other unbecoming behavior portrayed by the New York City Police Department. The images of police brutality started pouring in after Occupy Wall Street started mocking the NYPD's request.

After Occupy Wall Street tweeted a photo of cops fighting protesters with the caption "changing hearts and minds one baton at a time", the barrage of negative responses from the 'NYPD' New York City Police Department twitter request came.

Some people uploaded a few friendly photographs, but still, the bad outnumbered the good, as shown below.

In response to the unfortunate twitter backlash that resulted from the 'NYPD' New York City Police Department twitter request, the NYPD said, "It is creating new ways to communicate effectively with the community." They added, "Twitter provides an open forum for an uncensored exchange and this is an open dialogue good for our city."

'NYPD' New York City Police Department twitter request failed miserably. According to a New York Times report, NYPD Deputy Chief Kim Y. Royster stated Tuesday evening that the department was engaging in new ways to communicate with the community, and Twitter provided them "an open forum for an uncensored exchange" that is "good for our city".
