According to Pulse of Radio,
Earlier this week Twitter launched an emergency alert service called Alerts. Twitter says Alerts is designed to bring accurate information from “credible organizations during emergencies, natrual disasters or moments when other communications services aren’t accesible.” Twitter says if a user signs up for the Alerts they will receive a notification on their phone whenever certain accounts, such as FEMA, marks a tweet as an alert. To sign up for the alerts Twitter users must log in and then visit an account’s set up page, for example twitter.com/FEMA/alerts. (UPI)
