[dupe] Hawaii EMA: NO Missile Threat to Hawaii (twitter.com)
7 points by tosh 5 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 2 comments



Got woken up by a "Ballistic missile to Hawaii" emergency cell broadcast. Groggily swiped the screen so it disappeared... Googled for 30 minutes how to see past emergency broadcasts and whether or not we're all going to die...

Outcomes:

1 - Quite a shitty UI for something so important.

2 - Someone is going to get fired...


For people with certain medical conditions this might not be just an ordinary mistake, but something that actually shortened their lifespan.
