Real, honest-to-goodness Muni is found just as easily in 140 characters as it is in 1,400. To whit:
@alleekate418: On the T watching a man eat something out of his shoe.
What kind of shoe, I wonder? And are we talking M&Ms or mashed potatoes?

An unusual flurry of Muni tweets were spotted recently mentioning seeing someone on Muni digging for gold:
Friday, April 6: “this lady on the 29 dug for gold up her right [nostril] & wiped it on her toddler’s back.” – @KatmanduHerself
Monday, April 9: “woman on the L drinking beer, picking her nose, wiping mouth with baby bonnet, flipping off an older lady, stickers on glasses” – @Zangelman
Monday, April 9: “Serious nose pickage on the 1BX right now. I thought this was a classier ride…” – @im_crafty
It made us wonder why, all of a sudden, such a phenomenon would unfold. Could it be … allergies? Also: Stop it, people.
Here we have a probable tooth from the Tenderloin Geographic Society, with some apt commentary:
Of all the buses in all the cities in all the world, why’d this molar have to pick mine?
Also, I know it’s raining, but the little spot of water(?) makes this extra grody.
It is a tooth, though, right?
O … M … G …
Found this on Flickr the other day. Julia explains, “One night I got on the back of the 49 and the egg was just there in the seat! These guys told us a lady was sitting there and she told them she felt sick and then got up and left the egg behind.”
From the field, @franoero reports: “Someone pooped their pants on muni.” We’ve all been there … smelling the poop, I mean. Also, open a window already, YOU GUYS!
@Smiffleblurf says, “Help! I’m on the 9 San Bruno and this lady blocked my seat with her 5ft tall wall of smelly trash. Phew!”
There really is no getting used to the smells aboard a Muni vehicle, is there?
