An anonymous Twitter user started the account @PPAwatch to point out user-submitted photos of Philadelphia Parking Authority officials doing the types of things they so love to give tickets for. The account has featured photos of PPA employees parking in handicap spots, blocking fire hydrants and on top of crosswalks.
It was only mildly popular until the PPA tried to shut it down, claiming logo infringement. The account was shut down, then allowed back up when the logo was changed.
That’s when the media picked up the story of the account, including a story on the local NBC affiliate.
