Like: RIPTA on Facebook, Twitter

OK, we’re not so keen on the Plaza repaving, but we do like finding that RIPTA is on Facbook. Apparently they are also on Twitter and have been tweeting since August. Why didn’t anyone tell us?

  • It will be interesting to see how RIPTA uses Twitter and how up to date it is. It would be really helpful to know about bus detours in real time.

  • It isn’t someone who works for RIPTA that made the Facebook page and it’s probably the same case for the Twitter account. I was the one who made the Facebook page, hence why I am an administrator of the page, but I still plan on spreading the word about RIPTA and keeping everything up to date. I also plan on putting RIPTA news/updates and schedules on the Facebook page. Let me know if you have any other suggestions!

  • Perhaps you should have something on your RIPTA page saying that it is not the official RIPTA page with a link to the official RIPTA page so you don’t fool people? After all, it looks pretty similar.

  • At this point, my RIPTA page is probably more accurate than the ‘real’ RIPTA page on Facebook. No offense RIPTA…

  • Except for the fact that you are posting on it as “RIPTA” as if you are speaking on behalf of the organization. That’s extremely misleading to those who are posting on your fake RIPTA page.

    I don’t know if you’ve been to the real (not quotated, because it is real) page or not, but they have a whole lot more information than your page.
