    just another gimmick like the hospital's A&E tweetathon - what a waste of police time. Some people are obsessed with social media and think it is the answer to everything. How is this going to cut down on domestic violence? And they have to be VERY careful about what they make public anyway for all the legal reasons...
    It's about time the issue of domestic abuse was openly discussed and it's severity made known.

    The days of such abuse staying behind closed doors is over.

    I hope this encourages those who are suffering to feel confident in reporting incidents to the police."

Sussex Police are tweeting every call reporting domestic violence across the county today (December 14)

Detective Inspector Miles Ockwell, from Brighton and Hove Adult Protection Team, plans to show how often incidents are reported to encourage victims to come forward.

The tweetathon is part of the launch of Sussex Police’s new domestic abuse campaign and includes a video giving advice to victims.

There will also be two live webchats, from 12.30pm to 2pm and 7pm to 8.30pm, where members of the public can ask questions and seek advice about domestic abuse.

Follow the 24-hour tweet-a-thon below or on @Sussex_Police using the #talktome hashtag.

All Tweets will be added to a Storify here: www.theargus.co.uk/news/special/domesticviolencesp
