Homeland Security Taps Twitter, Facebook For New Alert System It is like Code Purple for the nation! No more level Orange threats. Facebook and Twitter are widely used, but what about the older generation or those without computers, the internet, or cell phones?
The new system is supposed to launch April 27th. They will post warning "when appropriate." It is probably not too far removed from the emergency broadcast system warnings and tests that go out over TV and radio. Might as well tap into Twitter an Facebook if people are on them all day long, right?
