More on social media for transit agencies

A few days ago, I introduced a spreadsheet listing Twitter accounts for the 50 largest transit agencies in the US.

You may find this summary to be helpful. If you’re keeping score, Twitter is still the most-used of the social media sites.

Finally, a brief note on methodology: I didn’t look that hard to find an agency’s blog or social media accounts. If there wasn’t a link on the agency’s homepage or a page that was one link deep (at most), then I gave up (as I expect most riders would). I did not search on the social media sites themselves in order to avoid spoofs, parodies, and other unofficial sites which are rampant on Twitter and such.
