@MetroLosAngeles Twitter Tuesday

Welcome to Twitter Tuesday, a weekly feature here at The Source where 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.

This past Saturday L.A. celebrated the Chinese New Year in Chinatown and Gold Line trains were packed to the brim with revelers and Twitterers:

HLP90042 Just realized why the Gold Line is packed today… Golden Dragon Parade!

BicyclingNate Oh Gold Line. You are so packed right now.

silusmouse On the Gold Line to visit my brother Aaron in Pasadena. The train is full of people celebrating Chinese New Year.

On person had a suggestion for next year’s parade:

HLP90042 @metrolosangeles dropped the ball with the Gold Line. Should have 3x-up the trains when a major parade is 1 block frm Chinatown Station.

It’s not Twitter Tuesday without some tweets about Metro’s Twitter accounts, @MetroLosAngeles and @MetroLAalerts (hint, people are still not convinced Metro’s tweeting at its full potential):

themunson @metrolaalerts you need to step up your alerts. If I knew 20-30 min wait was really 60min, I would have cabbed it and sent you the bill.

GoneMetro @metrolaalerts If by normal you mean not being able to get from Hollywood to Westchester on less than three buses, then yes, all is normal

seanyodarouse what good is the @metrolosangeles twitter account for if they don’t tweet about the blue line delays #fail

Here’s a few general complaints from Twitter users:

I_AM_GRAM @metrolosangeles needs to fix the NoHo station turnstiles ASAP, there isn’t a designated turnstile for the Handicapped, Strollers, & Bikes.

themunson @metrolosangeles Love it when fare inspectors tell you not to block the aisle as they’re blocking the aisle http://twitpic.com/13yjyj

richardx7 @metrolosangeles What’s with those machines not having any tickets available, ONLY accepting coins or ONLY accepting bills?

PBunches Majorly upset the 920 @metrolosangeles bus left even though she saw me flagging her down. And THREE 20 have gone by in the last 5 min, ugh!

Finally, last week we listed some of our favorite local transportation blogs, and at least on Twitter user took notice:

machikoyasuda @sirinya47 congrats on the @metrolosangeles the source mention! i’d say it’s one of the happier blogs on the list.
