Use Twitter To Get Latest Traffic Info

leave a comment »


By now we all know about the real-time communications aspect of Twitter.  CommuTweet is a new service looking to leverage that real-time aspect to provide traffic updates for commuters regardless of the mode of transport (ie. rail, car, bus, etc).  It is a free service and all you need is a Twitter account to get started.  You can view and post either on the CommuTweet website or through Twitter.  CommuTweet is also subscribed to all the official public transit feeds, so there are plenty of updates even if users aren’t generating them.  I haven’t tried it out for the New York subway system but being underground and not getting a signal might not be very useful.
