Swedish Police on Twitter?

Today, I noticed that the Swedish Police is on Twitter! I am not sure if this is the real Police in West Sweden or just someone just pretending. According the tweets, it looks like the real thing. The links in the tweets point to the official website of the police. The use of Twitter and similar services by government organizations raises the question of how we as citizens can make sure that the identify of the organization has validity and credibility. If the Swedish Police is using Twitter, then this is a truly amazing moment, signaling a radical shift in perspective of government organizations and that they now has started to realize the momentum in social applications and social media.
