While the MTA cautioned it was working to determine what caused a Manhattan derailment of the A train Tuesday morning, New York City residents wasted no time determining where to lay the blame.
Governor Andrew Cuomo's official Twitter account was bombarded with rage-filled tweets from New Yorkers who have had just about enough of the failures of the MTA, which Cuomo oversees through board appointments.
As some pointed out, it was Cuomo's introduction of free Wi-Fi in all subway stations that enabled straphangers to vent their frustrations on social media in real time.
Yes. The wifi & cell service of which Cuomo is so proud provides real-time images of train derailments. https://t.co/AFCtq9KDHl— Second Ave. Sagas (@2AvSagas) June 27, 2017

@NYGovCuomo derailment on the ABCD line, stop raiding the MTA budget and fix the subways.— Jonathan Beshay (@jbeshay) June 27, 2017
@NYGovCuomo Roughly 1 in 38 Americans live in New York City & none of us can ever get anywhere on time because our transit system is busted.— tyler easter (@tylerOeaster) June 27, 2017
While Cuomo didn't tweet anything about the derailment, his last tweet on the status of the health care bill in Congress drew the ire of his constituents closer to home.
Cool. Do you mind working on the NYC Subway a little? Thanks...— Atticus Mulkey (@amulkey5) June 27, 2017
