Get Traffic Updates From Commuters on Twitter

Taking advantage of Twitter’s real-time aspect, CommuTweet lets commuters share traffic updates, regardless of the mode of public transportation.

CommuTweet

While it may seem like a good use of Twitter, CommuTweet is
probably more useful when the transportation is not underground, like most
subway systems. With lack of reception, it’s questionable how many people would
actually remember to update if they can’t do it immediately–and doing it later
would defeat the real-time purpose. For subways, if delays are an issue, it
might be easier to just subscribe to local transportation authority’s
feeds.
