WOODBURY - The Twitter page @LIPartyStory is receiving criticism for encouraging teens across Long Island to post videos and pictures of shocking behavior at parties.

The videos include drinking, drug use, sex and illegal behavior.

The page has more than 18,000 followers and allows followers to know where parties are being held.

Marge Lee, of DEDICATEDD, which helps victims of DWIs, says she's most upset by videos showing parents, even grandparents, partying along with the teens.

"Instead of the adults being proactive and stopping some of this, some of them are participating in this. It's just sickening," said Lee.

Last year, Twitter took down a similar page because of media exposure and complaints. The page appeared to be taken down after News 12 aired this story at 10 p.m.
