WesTXT: not even your cell phone is safe

Your email inbox overflows with all-campus emails. Your mailbox is stuffed with junk mail from credit card companies to which the University sells your information. But, though you thought your phone was the one last form of communication uncorrupted by Wesleyan’s intrusions, this text message arrives:In any case, the situation probably isn’t so dire. As we’ve experienced in the past, this was probably just a test of the University’s emergency notification system, which contacts us in the event of an emergency.

    ITS sent out an e-mail a little while ago. apparently it was inadvertently sent out while they were making some changes to the system in preparation for the test in 2 weeks.

    I’d like it if it were more clear whether these are reserved for emergency messages or just general announcements. I pay per text message and would rather not pay unnecessarily.
