Don't worry, folks. The L train is back to its normal shoddy self after a brief period of decent service, the MTA tweeted.

The presumably mis-typed tweet was mocked almost immediately on social media.

An L train was having problems with its doors in the Third Ave. station at 9:16 a.m., but regular service resumed about 9:30 a.m., according to MTA spokeswoman Amanda Kwan.
The chronically overcrowded and delayed L line is slated to shut down for 18 months in early 2019 so contractors can do millions of dollars of repairs to the Canarsie Tunnel under the East River, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy, officials said.
MTA officials hope to shave three months off the shut down by offering contractors a $15 million bonus if they can finish quicker.
