With social media becoming one of the primary platforms for disseminating information and influencing behaviour, many official, government and law enforcement agencies have taken to it to make announcements and keep people informed and connected. While Mumbai Police and Kolkata Police have already made their mark on Twitter with their funny, quirky posts on traffic safety, the latest to join the fray is Assam Police.
The north-eastern state's police force's Twitter handle made a splash on social media recently after it used a cool post to talk about road safety. Who would have known that Assam Police was a Freddie Mercury fan? Surprised? Check out their latest tweet:
The post is a reference to the legendary Queen song 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. It quotes lines from the song to make people realise that facts remain facts, no matter what happens. The caption read thus:
"Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
Real life is not a fantasy.
Fact check before you forward,
There's no escape from reality.
Mama, I don't wanna lie."
These lyrics appear early on in the song, written by none other than Mercury himself and performed by Queen. Assam Police also used a photo of Mercury with the words 'Facts live forever' on it. The message of the post is clear - don't believe everything you read or see on the internet or through social media and stay wary of fae news. The post has won several hearts on social media who praised Assam Police's interesting use of a pop culture icon to make a very valid, contemporary point.
