A parody Twitter account that goes by the name "Red Line Ghost Train" was created Thursday hours after a Red Line train barreled past four stations despite having no operator.
The person behind the Twitter handle @ghosttrainred began tweeting around 10: 30 a.m., four hours after the unmanned train, which was carrying 50 passengers, traveled from Braintree Station to North Quincy station. By 4 p.m., the account had racked up more than 450 followers.
Tweets included jokes about what the MBTA described as a "highly troubling" incident. Gov. Charlie Baker said the train was tampered with and that the matter was under investigation.
