511 for Subway Info

Apparently New York had such a good experience with 311, the number to dial for any issue to do with City government (potholes, jobs) and some you wouldn’t think had to do with it at all (smoking cessation), that it’s upped the ante.  Now, you can call 511 for weather and traffic, including subway line info, or you can follow them on Twitter, with different feeds for different lines.  Other than Twitter, I’m not sure what it adds over the MTA’s website notices.  I’m just getting into blogging in 2009, so I’m obviously not ready for Twitter, but if you try it, let me know what you think.
