Metro Throws it Down in Twitter Haiku Battle With BART

New, 8 comments

Expo Line is unassailable

Nothing says, "It’s Friday" like one transit agency engaging another in a haiku battle. Seemingly unprovoked, Bay Area Rapid Transit threw down the gauntlet, daring Metro to fight a battle of words, because why not?

Judging by a subsequent tweet referencing LA’s "silence," we’re guessing it took Metro a second to come up with some searing criticisms and then translate them into the proper rhyme scheme. BART came at Metro hard, but LA transit fans had the agency’s back.

Eventually, Metro stood up for itself.

Fans of both agencies jumped in to playfully diss the other city’s transit shortcomings.

Since this was all in good fun, even BART had to concede that the new Expo Line is pretty cool, though.
