Complete the Tweet

A reader had what we think is a great idea. Metro often ignores the 140-character limit on its tweets, which can lead to some pretty baffling messages. So let's help Metro out and complete the tweets. Use the comments to finish the thought on this gem from July 14.

Red Line: Due to mechanical difficulties, all the station's entrance escalators on the 19th street entrance are out of service. The street elevators are being offloaded and other elevators will be single-tracked through the area. Expect delays of at least 30 minutes, or just take the stairs.

Red Line: Due to mechanical difficulties, all the station's entrance escalators on the 19th street entrance are out of service. The street elves thought it would be quite the prank to plug them all up with magic asphalt dust! See? Not our fault.

Red Line: Due to mechanical difficulties, all the station's entrance escalators on the 19th street entrance are out of service. The street entrance stairs are also out of order. Don't ask us how we managed that.

Red Line: Due to mechanical difficulties, all the station's entrance escalators on the 19th street entrance are out of service. The street exsits only in your mind, though, so there's really no reason to leave the station.

Red Line: Due to mechanical difficulties, all the station's entrance escalators on the 19th street entrance are out of service. The street entrances are blocked by hordes of angry Orange Line commuters. Free riot gear and shuttle bus service will be provided to all Metro employees.

Red Line: Due to mechanical difficulties, all the station's entrance escalators on the 19th street entrance are out of service. The street exists only if you allow it to exists. The underlying reality of things is Metro. All is Metro. There are no escalators, and there never were any escalators. We do not apologize.
