Twitter users have hijacked the New York Police Department's (NYPD) social media campaign to show a face far less friendly than the NYPD intended. Critics of the police department flooded the #MyNYPD hashtag with photos of violent arrests and negative personal experiences.

The @NYPDNews account launched the #MyNYPD campaign to solicit photos with officers.
