Could this worry be worse? It seems that the fact that someone hacked the Hawaiian Governor's account and sent everyone a warning of a false rocket attack was not enough, as it seems that the governor took 17 for minutes to publish on Twitter that he was false because ... he did not know his code account.
In summary, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency submitted the threat of ballistic missiles to 8.07 am. Pacific Time on January 13, while Ige tweet-are the four words "there is no rocket threat" at 8.24 am. the same day. The second notice sent to the phones became 38 minutes after the false alarm.
Ige said he set Twitter on his phone so he can publish faster, although we hope he will not have to refute another false missile warning.
"I have to confess that I do not know the Twitter account entries and passwords, so it's definitely one of the changes I made. I put this on my phone so we can have direct access to social media, "he said, before adding that his reaction time could be increased because he also called local authorities.
Shortly after release tweet, Ige released several statements, including an apology for Hawaiian residents, all of them on Twitter, probably trying to show everyone that he regained his account password.
"On behalf of the State of Hawaii, I deeply apologize for this false warning that has created anxiety and fear of a crisis for our residents and visitors," the governor said. "I can personally assure every resident and visitor that measures have already been taken by the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency to ensure that such a situation never happens again."
Currently, both Twitter and Facebook accounts are managed by Ige's staff, but apps have been installed on his phone so that the governor can personally publish it on social media.
Let's simply hope it will not be delayed and no other missile warning delivered to Twitter ... Fortunately it has only 7.000 followers.
