Coming Soon: @FakeAlbany


Here’s a fun time-waster. Since Monday, @FakeMTA has been posting faux transit updates on Twitter. Examples: "Sneak peek at completed Second Ave. Subway released!" and "If passengers don’t move all the way into the car, the C train is going to turn around and go home." There are benign neighborhood-specific barbs as well, with the L line as a favored target.

Surprisingly (or not), @FakeMTA isn’t the only agency impersonator. For official, oddly engrossing transit Tweets, try @NYCTSubwayScoop.

We know what you’re thinking. As of this writing, @FakeNYCDOT is still available.
