A busy first week for Metro’s social media manager

A week into his new job, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s (DC) social media manager Brian Anderson summed up his first few days. “They’ve been rough,” Anderson told @TBD On Foot. “They’ve been busy . . . The reception so far has been good.” Anderson joins WMATA as the agency embarks on its six-year Metro Forward system overhaul. He has been sending out tweets and hopes to take advantage of the reach of Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, and iTunes. “I’d definitely like to see Facebook integrated a little more,” he said. In the meantime, one of his first initiatives was to shoot some video of track work on the Red Line to share details about station closures and shuttle buses with the riding public. “I’m trying to remove that element of the unknown,” he said.
