#Grateful for not Getting Groped

Tweet your Thanksgiving travel TSA screening experience this holiday:

Many travelers will have their first taste of the TSA’s new stricter security measures this week as the busy holiday travel season begins. With some passengers-rights groups urging people to opt out of security scanners on the day before Thanksgiving for more time-consuming pat-down screenings, the PBS NewsHour wants to know about your airport security experience.

Starting on Wednesday, tweet @NewsHour the time it took you to get through security — from the time you got in line until the time you put your shoes back on — and we might include your tweets in a future blog post and round-up of how the new security measures and some passengers’ resistance are playing out.

Here’s how to participate via Twitter:
Include the hashtag #TSATime in your tweet.

Be as specific as possible (Example: @NewsHour It took me 52 min. at #DCA at 9 am because I opted out of full-body scanner for #patdown. #TSATime)
Include the three-letter code for the airport where you were screened (Example: #LAX, #CMH, #MIA).

And don’t hesitate to provide more details or anecdotes about your experience as space permits. Quotes and observations are welcome. But make sure to keep the language clean and follow the rules at your airport.
