We're constantly bombarded by corporate messages we can't avoid. Both through our technology and by physical media like junk mail and billboards.
But one short message from our democratically elected government and people think it's "creepy".
@apLundell More, a message testing a system to communicate information in emergencies liable to cause widespread injury and death. Really shows how much paranoia is integral to US politics.
(Even granting that the Future Disgraced Former President's nominal involvement makes it harder to believe the government would prefer, if possible, that disasters were less bad.)
