Submission + - Terror Alerts Come To Facebook, Twitter (

RedEaredSlider writes: The Department of Homeland Security is getting with the times: it's coming to Facebook and Twitter.

As part of a wholesale change to the way it announces terror threats, the agency plans to use Facebook and Twitter to relay the information about its new warning levels, which are now "elevated" and "imminent." Sources familiar with the situation said the agency is using Facebook and Twitter because that is where many people now get their news.
