Pro Trimet propaganda takes over social media

Trimet's  latest conquest is Twitter
It certainly appears that Trimet bureaucrats have finally taken over social media to the same extent that they have taken over mainstream media. 

Six months ago and before that we would see very little pro Trimet tweets. The Trimet feed was basically filled with people bitching about the various travails they faced  riding Portland's public transit system. 

Today there are so many tweets that are basically propaganda (the new train, the new bridge, some stupid feel good story etc) that it has drowned out the complaints.

Obviously there is something more at work here , some kind of concerted effort has been made to seize social media from the critics.

And as usual, Trimet wins the battle, again
