The earthquake that lightly rattled the East Coast today really freaked New Yorkers (and Twitter users) out. It’s worth noting that earlier this year, a federal report put Indian Point at the top of a list of nuclear reactors that are most vulnerable to quakes. But whoever runs the Twitter account for the controversial facility is doing a proficient job of making sure everyone knows that there’s no danger of an imminent meltdown (yet).
Every time a tweet mentions “indian point,” the account responds with a calming message:
Both plants are operating at full power and there are no issues at @Indian_Point #indianpoint
They tweeted that exact response to over 100 people in the last hour alone. It’ll be interesting to see how well they’re able to keep up their Twitter game if some real shit goes down.
