@Brockton24_7 expected to get new computer on Nov. 1
Twitter fiend Frank Kelly will have a new computer soon thanks to donations collected by Robert Morano, a fellow avid Tweeter known online as BrocktonBeat.
On Tuesday, Morano sent the news out via – where else – Twitter: “We raised almost $280 and we were able to get a refurbished HP desktop from Sears. It is on order from the Warehouse. Thank You to all.”
Morano, who has never met Kelly, started the fundraiser when he read in The Enterprise that Kelly had gone offline on Oct. 1 due to a water spill on his keyboard.
Kelly, a 54-year-old retired electrician and former EMT, tweets often – sometimes several times an hour – to his more than 2,700 followers.
He covers mostly breaking news, a service that Morano said is essential to the city.
“Frank fights crime in his own way,” Morano said.
“We try to get the missing persons and the BOLOs out,” added Kelly, “because the amount of followers we have now are a lot of cops from the surrounding towns.
“We can tweet a lot quicker than they can make a phone call,” added Kelly, who said he was embarrassed by the notoriety. “That was very nice of him to do.”
Kelly’s new computer is scheduled to arrive Nov. 1. Morano plans to meet Kelly for the first time next week when he hand-delivers his new computer.

Lets Help a Fellow Brocktonian Fight Crime Online.

I read about Frank Kelly of Brockton, Ma in the Enterprise this morning an article by Maria Papadopoulos.
He tweets crime and news constantly on his Twitter site @Brockton24_7. He is one of the unsung heroes that helps fight crime in his own way and his over 2000 followers including media like my site and others use his vital information.

Frank helps fight crime in the best way he knows how by listening to the police scanners all day and it seems night long. Please read the Enterprise Story by Maria Papadopoulos. 

According to the article Frank stopped tweeting on October 1st because he spilled coffee on his computer. Frank is a true crime fighter and I would like to help by raising money on
With His followers on Twitter and if we all just donate 5 dollars we can have him up and running and giving us vital information in no time.
Please click her for GoFundMe and if you are a follower please donate a few bucks and lets get Frank back online. I miss him!
