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.
Hey look, some positive tweets about Metro:
ESylviaSimpson Impressed with the new metrorail gold line expansion. Let’s start using it!
BiGLetteR I love this whole LA subway thing. (@ Vermont / Beverly Metro Station – Red Line) http://4sq.com/beJrf2
dsedamlop took the gold line to union station downtown for #dodgers game. had to cuss out a crazy in spanish but amazing day so far.
thelittlefella Riding the gold line on Sunday is fun. Headed to tea in little Tokyo with the madre. Hoping the dodgers make their mothers proud today.
Not everyone found Metro helpful on Mother’s Day though:
greenconcepts leave it to LA metro to close down multiple blue line stations for mother’s day. thanks.
And it wouldn’t be Twitter Tuesday without a fair share of complaints about off-schedule buses combined with creative #hashtags:
mpatterson73 @metrolosangeles what’s a Thursday without the 550 being off schedule. Way to go Metro!! #cantbelieveipayforcrappyservice

In March the Braille Institute teamed up with Metro to help educate the public on navigating the public transportation system for those with vision impairments. This week, there were a few tweets linking to a video the Braille Institute produced about the event:
Braille_Inst Braille Institute and @metrolosangeles help people with visual impairments get around town: http://bit.ly/cLw5sr #video
LBmatt Ever wonder how blind/visually impaired people even ride the @metrolosangeles trains? @Braille_Inst shows how: http://bit.ly/cLw5sr
Recently on The Source we’ve started promoting Destination Discounts in an effort to get more people out and on the transit system, while saving a little cash. A few tweets this week referenced some of the events we promoted, let’s hope everyone took advantage of the deals:
christashima Just realized I left my wallet on my desk at the office. Good thing I’m taking @metrolosangeles. Goin’ to @AsianFilmFestLA #LAAPFF #DTLA
HLP90042 The pow-wow at @LASHP looks pretty happening from the Gold Line.
I like when people just casually tweet while taking Metro somewhere. It makes me feel a lot better than when people casually tweet while #distracteddriving somewhere:
sabillonLA Heading to a bar in West LA via @metrolosangeles
