Fare dodgers in Germany use Facebook and Twitter to outwit ticket controllers!!!

Fare dodgers in Germany are using social networks such as Facebook and Twitter to warn fellow travellers of the presence of public transport inspectors on buses and trains.

Some even describe the inspectors, who wear ordinary clothes, so that those riding the transit system illegally can avoid them before being challenged to show their tickets.

Several such groups have sprung up over recent months on social networks, especially in the larger cities of Hamburg, Munich and more recently Berlin.

Some messages are short and to the point. More...
