If you choose to add a hashtagged word to the contents of alert you composed, our technology will likely convert it to to a I just want to vent. At a minimum, the message will be held for review by our moderators.
However, if you compose a message and incude a hashtag as a way to identify a train (e.g., #6214), Clever Commute technology will treat that the same as if you used the picklist to identify your train.
Finally, the user-generated alerts are sent to Twitter. If it will fit within the 140 character limit, they are tagged with
- the name of the transit provider (e.g. #LIRR, #NJTransit, #MetroNorth)
- maybe an ad (see below)
