    Yeah. It's because it's got "presidential" in the title. That's the weird bit. I think it's just a stupid decision somewhere.

    Imagine if every Trump tweet was a forced notification on your phone.

    There's people who would love that. Like zago, apparently.

    I'm just waiting for a presidential aide with a keen sense of humor to send us all this:

    I'm pretty sure we could manage to get Donny to actually send a picture of his toadstool if we play our cards right. All we need is some reporters to ask him about the size of his toadstool repeatedly and then follow up his answer with a question expressing doubt.


    And before you know it Mike, Zago, Heph, and PP are going to have a new wallpaper on their phones.

    Suspiciously, my phone died the night before. Its a fantastic idea. With the internet, a lot of people no longer watch TV. Many don't even visit news sites. An SMS alert reaches nearly everyone now that we have Obama phones. This will save a lot of lives.

    However it is the government. I'm sure they will figure out a way to be bad.

    Don't need no Obama phone anyways.

    If I was to say: "Quick name a widely known twitter user! Fast!" I suspect you might name a very highly ranked government individual. So we've already been there, done that.
