Well, This Is Terrifying: Trump Now Has Access to Nation-Wide, Unblockable Group Texting

One of the strangest things about coming to terms with our President-elect is trying to wrap our minds around the idea of a president who goes on tweet rants about and against the media, former pageant winners, and YA movie star gossip. What is any rational person to do? Not follow him on Twitter, right? Or maybe not being on Twitter at all. (Leaving aside the fact that access to our President’s pronouncements shouldn’t be a detriment to our well-being.)

Now imagine if Trump’s tweets were unblockable. And incapable of having their notifications disabled. And if your phone couldn’t even be silenced from them.

That’s the very real dystopia that is now in front of us.

So, yes, realistically and logistically, those Amber Alerts and other emergency texts have to go through at least one other department before reaching our phones. But guess who’s appointing the heads of those departments? Here’s hoping the new head of FEMA cares more about securing federal emergency funds than keeping Trump happy, otherwise we might not want to assume our hurricane warnings have priority over Trump’s 3am rants about the weight and morality of his former pageant winners, the latest Washington Post headline, or the love life of Kristen Stewart.

Happy nightmares, everybody!
