Presidential Alert Text Sent to 225 Million Irritated Cell Phone Users

by at .

We don't often think this, but...

...thank goodness for social media.

On Wednesday, October 3, the first-ever test of the national Presidential Alert system meant that about 225 million individuals received a message from the White House.

It read as follows:

THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.

Considering who lives in the White House these days, such a message sowed chaos, confusion, annoyance and fear across this great country.

But it also sowed some hilarious reactions on Twitter, many of which we've collected below...

1. Wait, What Was This?!?

Wait, What Was This?!?
In the event of an actual emergency, the Presidential Alert will include information about the emergency and instructions for how to respond and stay safe. That's the idea behind these messages.
