Social Media Spotlight: Parking justice for all
What it is: A Twitter account where students can voice their opinions about Towson’s parking situation.
Why it was started: Four students, who wished to remain anonymous, began the account for a public relations class project, but then decided to continue it after realizing the strong opinions and stories that students had to share about parking. So far, they have heard from multiple students, including students who spoke out about having to pay multiple parking tickets. Students expressed distress over the 7,000 permits that are distributed for 3,000 spaces, the creator said.
Why follow: The creator of @TUParkingProbs said that following the Twitter is a way to speak out against parking, and hopefully the university will take notice. But it’s also a way to post jokes and poke fun at the issue, so the creator said students should follow if they want a good laugh. Find @TUParkingProbs at twitter.com/TUParkingProbs.
