What do you do when you’re the founder of a popular photo-sharing service? Tweet a picture of yourself getting arrested with it, of course.
Early Tuesday morning, TwitPic founder Noah Everett (who has 2.8 million followers) tweeted that he was getting arrested and was in the back of a cop car. To prove it, Everett the posted a picture in a separate tweet from the back of the cop car (shown above).
According to subsequent tweets (see updates below), his encounter with police stemmed from him being naked in public. We haven’t even been able to confirm if he even was arrested. If true though, Everett has taken oversharing to a whole new level. The speed at which this pic is spreading is another demonstration of the power of social media, though we’re not sure this is the type of picture we’d want to spread across the web.
Updates: Two follow-up tweets from Everett:
“…I guess you can’t walk down your own street half naked…who knew – I got a free ride home by the nice police officer”
“…by half naked, I mean naked”
