David Warner launches Twitter manhunt for stolen bat
David Warner posts a picture on Twitter to look for a bat thief.
In the good old days all a thief had to do to disappear was shake off the cops and cover his or her trail. In the age of social media however, elusiveness proves to be a tad more elusive.
Does anyone know this bloke. One of my bats have been taken from my bag and he is flogging it online. pic.twitter.com/JxhJ7nAvWp— David Warner (@davidwarner31) January 19, 2016
Back in the good old days Warner would have to get a sketch artist to draw up a image of the thief. Then he’d get it posted across town. If luck was on his side, someone may get back to him within a week. In today's day and age however all he needs to launch a manhuntwithin seconds is a smartphone.
We have found the bat. He thought it would be a joke to take a pic and pretend to sell it online. He did not steal it he just took a pic.— David Warner (@davidwarner31) January 20, 2016
Warner did find the bat but it turned out that the person in the photo wasn’t a thief. It must be disconcerting to have David Warner launching a Twitter wide manhunt against you. That is where Daniel Jennings found himself today because of a picture posted by his friend.
Well I do but don't understand why would he put it online to sell when it's not his. https://t.co/H7h4fXNPKI— David Warner (@davidwarner31) January 20, 2016
