Another fun week on the 911 Twitter watch, where eyebrow-raising calls to area dispatch center take centerstage. Former reporter Chelsea Gorrow started a Twitter feed at to point out calls that may not be the best use of the service.

See what you think of this week’s offerings. {8/2 @ 11:36 a.m.} Women took their shoes off and started dancing near Columbia Bank, prompting calls to police. {8/4 @ 8:26 p.m.} A caller was concerned about a person sitting in a car at the Mini Mart for 2 hrs. Person was using Mini Mart’s free WIFI. {7/31 @ 11:22 a.m.} A female, applying eye make-up while driving, was warned on the Astoria Bridge for not staying in her lane.
