So this is the ad you can see on the side of a San Francisco MUNI bus – “Good People. Tough Jobs.” The same slogan is on some of the vehicles the Parking Control Officers use these days (and you know, they could always twist it around to Tough People, Good Jobs and use it for recruiting.)
Anywho, the bus ad has a Transit Fare Inspector’s pretend Twitter feed on the right side. About what you’d expect, except for two entries. Check it out.

“10:05 AM Stopped a tagger from vandalizing a Metro train.”
O rly? What’d you use - handgun, rifle, akido, maybe a 12-gauge shotgun?
“12:25 PM Broke up a fight between two passengers.”
That’s it, no details? We gots to gets the deets.
Maybe MUNI should set up a fare inspector as an official Twittererer for a week or so. In real life. The fare inspector could give out tips to passengers, show what a typical day is like, give advice on how to hold onto your Apple iPod, etc…
It couldn’t hoit.
