Hello? Govenment... is that you?
Twitter is buzzing about a CMAS Alert (that just went out on the Verizon wireless network.
I'm still not sure just how this alert system works but having the app on my own phone I can tell you that one new feature that may have giving the reason to test the system is the addition of new alert categorize: Extreme alert, Severe Alert and Amber Alert.
Presidential-level alerts on the other hand have been mandatory since I first got the phone last October.
A search on twitter for #cmasalert will bring up what the interwebs are saying about the test alert sent to me and other verizon users today at 1:55pm MST
Did you get an alert from ? The government now has a direct line, to your pocket, to make you AFRAID!
