#TubeStrike Twitter reaction: Brands tweet weary Londoners with promise of chocolate, gyms, rides & skateboards

Londoners often shudder in fear at the mention of tube strikes.

Alas the dark times have returned. Londoners now find themselves suffering the worst indignities a non-functional train service can afford.

To lighten the mood, gain a little recognition and engagement (and ease the situation) a whole host of brands pitched in to help stranded commuters weather the storm.

Fitness First gym opened up its doors to stranded commuters

Renault ferried commuters in a fleet of Twizy motors for free in a campaign created by Publicis London.

Taxi hailing app Gett offered commuters who hitched a ride free chocolate and discounts.

Taxi rival Hailo also targeted discounts at specific accounts on Twitter.

Penny Skateboards were handing out free boards.

Direct Line was doling out survival packs #EveryDayFix. The Drum London was lucky enough to receive one.

And The Office Group was dishing out work space to stranded workers.

Here's a few more of the best tweets.
