Twitter and Facebook are Used for Terror Alerts in the US

Things are not the same since the fateful September 11. In the United States, the federal government has a way just curious to classify terrorism threats: through 5 different levels, which confuse more than clarify. That’s about to change with the new plan national counterterrorism, you want to use Twitter and Facebook to issue alerts to citizens.

The agency Associated Press obtained access to a document dated April 1, in which the officials clarify how will be the new system. Instead of five alert levels (low, generally elevated, high and severe), only 2: elevated and imminent. The high risk warning concerning the possible threats to security national of the United States. In this case, nothing to specify possible victims. In the imminent warning is against very specific targets.

What information will be relayed to the citizens it is something that only the equivalent of the Ministry of Defence may decide. Overall, the alerts will run the following path: federal, state authorities (governors), and finally the mayors. In the latter case, the public will be made aware of the warnings.

The adoption of Twitter and Facebook is expected to disseminate alerts “only when appropriate.” Again, the security authorities decided this level of ownership. In addition, certain warnings may be issued specifically for certain groups of people, while another alert with different information can be sent to another group.

Anyway, we can see that the United States continues with its war on terror in full operation. No information on these alerts will be disseminated – whether by official profiles on social media or through direct partnerships with Twitter and Facebook.
