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...
