If You Have Warrants, Taunting The Police On Twitter Is Not A Good Idea

We might as well end the week with a funny one. It seems that a Texas woman couldn't resist taunting the police on Twitter about her outstanding warrants according to this story over at USA Today.
"I still gotta warrant in pearland..those pigs will NEVER catch me!!!…NEVER!!!" she tweeted. 
Is anyone besides Mason-Kelly surprised to learn that police monitor Twitter? 
As Lt. Onesimo Lopez of the Pearland Police Department told ABC, officers frequently search for keywords such as "Pearland" to "keep abreast of what's going on in town." 
"This tweet came up. The officer saw it, took a picture and printed it out and gave it to warrant officers," Lopez said.
I'm glad to see that the fine officers at Pearland PD disabused her of this notion.
