Lone Signal allows you to tweet extraterrestrials

Want to tweet aliens? A new company will allow you to do just that.

A privately owned company is hoping to make contact with extraterrestrials, and they are turning to the people of Earth for help.

Lone Signal, a New York-based startup business, has recently leased the satellite equipment of the Jamesburg Earth Station in California’s Carmel valley in hopes of communicating with alien intelligence. More specifically, they will attempt to make contact with Gliese 526, a solar system located 17.6 light-years from Earth.
