Hawaii's governor says one of the reasons he was unable to quickly notify the public of the recent false missile alarm was because he forgot his Twitter password. Hawaii Governor David Ige was told the missile alert was a false alarm two minutes after the statewide alert was falsely broadcast across the state on January 13th. But, it took Ige's office 17 minutes after the false alert, to issue a statement saying the alert was, in fact, false. In a press conference on Monday reporters pressed Ige about the delay.
He said he was caught up in making phone calls to various leaders and then added that not knowing his Twitter account log-ons and passwords was also part of the problem.
