Dept. Of Good Ideas: Transtar Is Twittering

Transtar, the umbrella agency that coordinates traffic on Houston roads, is entering the Twitterarium, or whatever the kidz be calling it these days.

Go to their main link and you can get individualized Twittering for all of the area's main roads.

"Twitter is a great way to give travelers the quickest, simplest news about what's going on with the roads they travel most often," Jack Whaley, Director of Houston TranStar, said in a release. "When it's rush hour, getting through an entire traffic update on the radio may be more information than the person wants; Twitter cuts through the irrelevant and unnecessary and focuses on what's important to that person."

We're assuming you won't get updates on what Transtar employees think of the latest House episode or whether they're getting a mocha latte at Starbucks. Like here.
