Tweeting The Cylons?

If you want to send a return message towards that cryptic signal we got from outer space back in '77, now is your chance. The only thing is, you have to do twitter. Instructions here.

This sounds fun, but I'm not sure it's a good idea. What if the Cylons intercept the message and are able to figure out where we are?

"the National Geographic Channel, which is timing the Twitter event to coincide with the premiere of the channel's new series, Chasing UFOs."

I've lost all respect for National Geographic. Money truly is the great motivator.

Keep in mind this seems to be the National Geographic's TV affiliate.
I don't see a problem with them using an event to plug one of their TV shows. They need revenue to publish their magazine and run their TV channel.

Do you think National Geographic magazine was published all these years by volunteers?

NatGeo is a scientific and educational nonprofit institution. I'm disappointed they'd produce, or lend their name to, a TV show about UFOs. Somehow, I doubt the show is about revealing how UFOs are hoaxes or natural/man-made phenomena. (If it is such a show, then I apologize.)

There's a big disconnect between NatGeo's well-known magazine and what looks like a cheesy superstition-inspired UFO show.
