The Worst Security Twitter FeedBy: John Honovich, Published on Apr 25, 2013
Security manufacturers are often clueless using social media but no one does it worse than NLSS, whose twitter feed is a case study of things not to do.

It's pretty crazy to claim 'finding criminals in record time' and quite distasteful to do it in the middle of the manhunt.
