Believe it or not, the SFMTA’s Twitter account, "@sfmta_muni," is staffed by real people. That's right: for 96 regular hours and seven days a week, our team of customer information officers (CIOs) uses the Twitter account to provide real-time Muni alerts, respond to information requests and collect feedback.

Today, two of "the humans behind Muni's official Twitter account" were featured in a podcast by the blog Muni Diaries, which interviewed two of our three dedicated CIOs, Schad Dalton and Rick Banchero.
