I’m excited for this, we don’t watch broadcast tv and we’re bad about leaving the emergency radio on.
What do you think, are you interested in the development of the text message emergency alert system? (Think of it like the reverse 911 system.) I almost always have my phone at least nearby and I know I’m not alone in that crowd.
I love Twitter, but I don’t trust it enough to depend on it for Tornado Alerts, although @CharlestonWX is great. Since I follow a great number of people, an alert might get lost in the noise. I could personally use PUSH to have certain alerts through IM. I know what I use isn’t 100% reliable and most people aren’t willing to fiddle with it.
What are your thoughts?
