Twitter helps Delhi police find family of lost woman with Alzheimer's
Social media services like Twitter often serves as a valuable means of spreading important, time sensitive information.
The site was recently of immense help to Delhi police in reuniting a lost 80-year-old woman affected by Alzheimer's with her family.
On Sunday, she was attempting to return home after going to a temple, but couldn't remember directions.
The department's Deputy Commissioner took a photo of her, and then tweeted it along with the message, "Smt Kamla Gupta, 80..found in Ashok Vihar..unable to recall her address. If u identify pls contact PS Ashok Vihar."
That call for help was then shared in a Facebook group, and before long the message reached the right people.
