Can't believe anyone would hack such a useful account, performing such services as helping keep you out of traffic jams. When you're driving along and get that useful push message from them, pick up your phone to check what that useful tweet was, when suddenly behind you go those flashing lights and siren. You pull over and a smiling, friendly occifer approaches your car. Apologetically he reminds you that use of your phone whilst driving is illegal and writes you an on the spot fine.....

Good point - arguably, posting traffic messages on Twitter encourages dangerous driving........
