"And since only confirmed followers can read the tweets how do you propose the police checked the facts?"
Easy peasy. They create a tweeter account, or use one they already had, then 'follow' DasBomber, then read the tweets at leisure. Five minutes work at most.
"so presumably there was a lot of tweets to put into context"
No, just a few of them. A one minute read, if the plod had chosen to go that way.
"The phrase "several hours" is also ambiguous and open to interpretation"
Yeah, at least two hours, beginning at 1 AM, for fuck's sake!
"The cops who did this did their job"...
