New York, N.Y. (AP) - The NYPD will honor police officers killed on 9/ 11 on Twitter and Facebook.
The department on Tuesday will post messages on Twitter once an hour for each NYPD victim, with links to individual memorial Facebook pages.
The messages will be posted before the officers' names are officially read at the 11th anniversary ceremony.
The police department's official Twitter account is (a)NYPD-news. Each tweet will be searchable through "(hash)neverforget."
The NYPD launched Facebook and Twitter accounts this year.
