BEST strike, Twitteratti

Even as over 25 lakh commuters that usually take a Brihanmumbai Electric Supply & Transport (BEST) bus on a daily basis are facing a deficiency of red in their lives, Twitter is coming to their rescue with timely updates.

The BEST workers have been on a strike since the last fours days due to various finance-related reasons including better pay and budget merger issues.
The flow of information is not limited to just information on alternate transport. Some journalists are even using their personal profiles to give Mumbaikars a slice of what’s happening behind the doors.
Many commuters are even coming forward to share their views on the issue, expressing their inconvenience in 280 characters or less.
Here’s one poll we will be waiting to see the results for!
