    PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia police are crediting social media for helping them with the investigation into an alleged hate crime in Center City. Detectives have been trying to figure out who brutally attacked two gay men at 16th and Chancellor streets on Thursday night. Police say the punches were so intense that they left one of the victims severely injured. His jaw is now wired shut. Investigators say it started with the group making derogatory comments about the pair’s sexual orientation, then the punches started flying. On Tuesday, investigators released surveillance video of up to 12 possible suspects. Shortly after that video was released, a photo was found on Twitter. A user named Greg said he got it from a friend of a friend. Then, another man using the Twitter handle @FanSince09 retweeted the photo, and lots of people immediately wrote to him identifying the restaurant.

    Sounds like a Ray Donovan plotline.
