@MetroLosAngeles Twitter Tuesday
Welcome to Twitter Tuesday, a weekly feature here at The Source in which we’ll round up the latest Metro related tweets in the Twitterverse. To follow Metro on Twitter just search for @MetroLosAngeles. We recommend adding the #MetroLosAngeles tag to your tweets to get our attention.
If Twitter feedback is any indication, the first week of June was a rough one for Metro operations. After a few weeks of positive feedback, Metro riders took to Twitter this week and made it clear that the trend is over. We did some light editing on some Tweets to remove language not appropriate for The Source.
There is one bit of positive news, Metro performed well at this year’s International Rail Rodeo:
