Using Twitter to track down house-trashing teens

Ex-pro athlete is using Twitter to find the teenagers who threw a party at his house well he was away. Brian Holloway learned on Twitter that his house was being used by hundreds of teens for an unauthorized party and used their tweets to track them down and find out who is responsible for the $20,000 damages.

The teens broke into his house and used social media to advertise the party. The teens who used social media to advertise the party will probably regret doing this, because Mr. Holloway is using social media to track them down. The attendance in his house was around 200 to 400 teenagers. The teenagers caused at least $20,000 in damage, such as breaking windows, punching holes in the wall, and spray painting graffiti, and that doesn't include the personal items that were stolen during the party. A large investigation is under way for the party people, but no arrests have been made. Teens who did not attend the party later helped him remove urine-soaked carpets and 10 large garbage bags full of liquor bottles. Holloway wants to use the teens identified at the party to be ambassadors to communicate the dangers of alcohol and drug. All in all, there is a lesson to be learned here, and that is don't put things you can get in trouble for on social media.
