US Homeland Security to Issue Terror Alerts on Facebook, Twitter

According to a  memo the Associated Press reports on today, the US Department of Homeland Security is entertaining the idea using Facebook and Twitter as one of its means to issue terror alerts beginning soon.

It is unclear how exactly, they will issue these alerts, but one can imagine that they will be utilizing their current Facebook Page and the new National Terrorism Advisory System Twitter Feed.

This isn't the first time a major agency brought their alert system to social media. A few months ago, Facebook teamed up with Local, State and Federal Agencies to issue Amber Alerts via the social network.
