TSA is Now Twitter Alert & Ready to Prepare You for Disaster

When disaster strikes, quick access to critical and accurate information can be crucial or even life-saving.

Twitter has recently launched a new feature called Twitter Alerts, which allows critical Tweets to be pushed instantly to subscribers from verified emergency sources during times of disaster and public emergencies.

How does this differ from other Tweets?
Only verified emergency accounts can mark Tweets as alerts and send them to your phone. Examples of verified accounts include local law enforcement, emergency management agencies, or response/aid organizations. These Alerts are marked with an orange bell which will make these important Tweets distinctive in your home feed.

The Salvation Army is signed up and very excited about this new feature as it will allow us to get you much needed critical information and updates during disasters. Alerts can be used for dangerous weather warnings or quick information on how and where to get help from The Salvation Army.

To subscribe to Twitter Alerts from The Salvation Army: https://twitter.com/SalvationArmyUS/alerts. And don’t worry, you can always unsubscribe to these alerts by visiting the same link.

For the fastest and most relevant information, make sure to follow your local Salvation Army on Twitter. Our local units will be registering for the alerts in the coming months, so keep an eye out.
