I made a joke Twitter account: Are the Columbia Heights Metro escalators working?

Some things in Columbia Heights have changed a lot, but other things never change: like the Metro escalators not working.

After yet another time walking heavy bags up the escalators-serving-as-stairs, I thought it would be funny to make a joke Twitter account that tweets if they're working or not: except it only tweets that they're not working. Since that is usually the case.

So follow @ColHtsEscalator now and every so often it will tweet if they're running (hint: they are not.) It's programmed to tweet once every 8 hours so you won't get spammed.

And special thanks to Victoria Pickering and T.D. Ford for letting me use their pictures of our sad, neglected escalators.
