Twitter Alerts Send Emergency Messages to Users’ Phones
Twitter launched a new service that allows organizations to send emergency messages to users’ phones.
Government agencies and non-governmental organizations who use Twitter Alerts can mark a tweet as an “alert” that will be sent to users during a natural disaster or crisis situation.
Users can sign up for Twitter Alerts to receive the information through a text message or push notification. Users can select which organizations they receive alerts from.
